    You're using a flash too, right?

    Yes, a flash was used. However I was not the photographer, one of my dive buddies was.

    I heard it wasn't really visibility in water that they were going for with the orange water - but visibility in murky water that was the point behind the orange face. It popped more when visibility was limited.

    Still - awesome photos. Can't wait to get back into the water, myself. Very jealous - of the diving and the subject matter.

    It's pretty murky in this photo (110-ft) and while the camera didn't have enough light to focus on the watch, the watch and bezel were quite discernable to me.

    Oh man, I'm jealous. My first dive I had about 3 feet of visibility at times. This is what I'm thinking of when I say murky.

    From elsewhere.... Here are some shots of a colour palate used for training divers.
    First a shot above water, then at 6m, then at 6m with a flash that returns the colours (because the light isn't being filtered through lots of water).

    So orange (and red) are gone by 6m underwater? What's the benefit of the orange dial then? I guess thats why most dive watch dials are black?
