:D They are great shots, I think I like the second one. A little less "fisheye".
Tell us about setting up the shot. Did you wait for the turtle to surface? Or were
you lucky to see it on the surface and position yourself under it. Your distance was what, about one foot from the subject?

In this photos I have used the Ikelite at full power and Subtronic at 1/2 power, the subtronic on the left and the Ikelite on the right side. For wideangle photo I use 25cm+25cm Carbolight arms.

For take this images I wait in the middle of water and when I see that a tourtle go up I swim to intercept the tourtle.
I stay very close to the subject, I think max. 10cm.

In Sestri Levante there are only 3 wrecks of IIWWR: 1 little at -30m, 1 of middle dimension at -36m and the best of three at -60m; there are other dive from shore but they very like only douring the night; but near Sestri Levante there is the marine park of Portofino where there are many big fish (groupers, Morreys ...) and much Red Corals and Paramuricea.
But in the summer I have the big of my work and I have no much time to spend in dives. :-(
