Good work. I like the caustics on the seafloor. However, if we have them, we're not far below and a scuba outfit for the diver would have been adequate. But never mind that.
I would normaly suggest to engage soft shadows for a scen like that but the hard shadows on the ground shows the entangled screw propeller like a mirror.
If you use multiple light sources, make sure to switch off shadow casting for the supporting lights. See the two shadows from the fish at right.
Nevertheless, good work here.

I fully agree with Horo's comments. I really like the caustics, you almost need to explain how you did it exactly. Horo is right, if you are only using a few radials for indirect light, it is often best to disable the shadows on those supporting or secondary lights in order to hide their exact positions because of the lack of directional shadows. If however you were using a couple dozen sources, then each would be very dim so the shadows would be a good thing. You already know this stuff. I feel your Bryce scenes are getting better and better tbahles!!!!!!

Nice scene. It is a little too bright.
But, I really like the growth on the hull.
