Vlad, this is really nice. Great subject, perfect exposure, and you really feel like you are underwater. You're off to a great start!

Thanks a lot. I like this shot. But also i think that there is need some usual object to fill scale. This is a realy big ship but it's not seen on the shot

You don't always need a large subject, but sometimes it's good...

here's a few quick links for some compositional ideas, although it will be a lot easier if you have a wide-angle wet lens for your cameras

Sometimes adding the silhouette of a diver far off, say in the upper left hand corner, gives the
foreground some dimension.
Personally, I like the diver far enough away so there are no features, color etc.

Great start.
