About the Photo
This is an wreck of an Dakota C-47 airplane, resting on ocean's ground at the south-coast of Turkey. Limited underwater visibility and the big dimensions of this plane made usage of strobes impossible. I therefore did that shot with using the ambient (natural) light only...in a water depht of around 20 Meter. f/8, 1/160 s, ISO 800. CANON 40D camera with a Sigma 10-20mm lens attached. This wreck was dropped to the water by the local authorities and divecenters to establish a new artificial reef and new attraction for scuba-divers.
