This is so cool! When I was a kid, this is what I thought scuba diving would be like - unknown assailants coming after you with knives drawn, sharks circling the moment blood is spilled... and then, wounded, you sink to the bottom and get your foot caught in a giant clam!

Really well composed pic! Captured the vibe of those 1960s-1970s action-adventure TV shows!

Yes, I did think of including a circling shark and even tried it out in the development stage but thought it distracted too much attention from the central action.
Based this on an old magazine cover, but more of that later.
The intertwined pose was quite difficult to arrange without all those supports.

I can picture this picture in a deep sea diving action movie. Very well posed on each diver.

Seeing other members random pictures mostly sparks my imagination. I wonder which diver won the underwater knife fight or if they were both separated by a deadly animal from the sea. Who knows.

Indeed Alex!
And as everyone here knows full well, there's ALWAYS an octopus lurking in the depths.....

I’m more picturing this deadly animal from the sea.

Even worse it’s being controlled by some villain.

Fantastic shot Barry!!!

I thought of Bond myself, Thunderball being my favorite Bond film. I thought the one fellow should be wearing orange...

I actually took a very similar set-up and photo a when i was a kid, The problem with mine that you have well avoided is my figures looked
like they were hugging each other...Shocked Laughing

Thanks heaps Brian. Always great to have one's work appreciated.
Must admit during the set-up that was a bit of a problem.
The trick seems to be having the figures engaged but leaning back from each other.

If I did it again I think I'd just lie both the figures down on a horizontal background and shoot down with the camera rather than having the difficulty of trying to make them stand up.
I really wasn't all that sure about using the bubble frame though.

Now THAT would be scary Alex!
Worse than a "shark with a fricken laser on its head"!
I've actually got one of those believe it or not! From Austin Powers of course! Couldn't resist buying it.
It's THIS one shown here, but I don't torment my cat with it. Actually I don't have a cat....

Maybe it just ended like this....
