To Fill or Not to Fill

I've always been a big fan of using fill flash with my underwater fashion and glamour photography. Fill flash gives a great pop to the face and gives clothing nice definition. Here are two shots that were taken just minutes apart - one with and one without flash. Which one do you like best?

Underwater Bride

This is a recent shot I did for a bridal shoot. I used D4 in an Aquatica housing with strobes and a custom backdrop of the Cathedral in Milan, Italy. Behind the scenes video is here:

Underwater Dreaming

Finally I had the chance to try my new underwater Ikelite case for Canon 5d mark iii. The case seems a bit smaller then for Canon markii.
The most challenging part was from this shoot was to get positioned all the objects in the water. We had to let the water sit for a while to get the
murkiness setled.
