I like the picture, since black and white, underwater settings and shirt & tie attire are all wins for me...but I didn't like it half as much as I did once I read your description. Here's to guts, glory, and the imaginative use of tape!

Underwater pictures are so rare, but I love them. Must've taken a lot of guts to get that camera wet. I probably couldn't be so brave!

Im shocked you managed to get such a clear shot through three plastic bags!

I actually wasn't shooting through three ziplock bags. I cut a hole in each bag, a hole just a tad smaller than the size of my UV filter, then I screwed on the filter with the bag in between the threads of the lens and filter; but since I cut that hole, there's no plastic over the lens' glass. Then I tape over everything. It's really hard to explain through words, but actually pretty simple to do.

Very intresting idea and execution.

Wow, this is a beautiful picture... so you were actually brave enough to trust a plastic bag to keep the water away from your camera?

I actually triple bagged it, and put silica packets in each bag to for the humidity. I made sure that no water was getting in. The only part of the camera that was toucing the water was the UV filter. I did many "tests" before the actual shoot, and I was using my old backup DSLR. (:
