Do you own a rotating polarizing filter?

I do, but I've never used it for b&w shots. I've been idly wondering how it would look; it might be quite useful. In this case I guess it would have allowed a better view of the stuff below the water (by eliminating some reflection of the water) -- but perhaps at the expense of the brilliance of the reflected highlight. Dunno. Would have been worth a try, thanks for the suggestion.

In general, for colour shots anyway, I've become very wary of polarizers. They seem to easily produce unnatural looking results with lighting that looks dark and flat. That said I imagine it's an effect that can be used to good effect, with enough practice and wisdom. Perhaps that unnatural look would be less pronounced with b&w, as well.

I like the dark cast over, of shadows. It gives the impression that the sun is setting in for today. I like the shot. It gives an idea that you like to look at things closely.

Textures, and underwater textures! This is a good idea for a composition of textures. I like to say textures.

I love the contrasts here between the highlights on the wet rocks and the depths of the water, and your use of dead space is very effective. the lighting is fantastic. a great shot.
