When diving, someone usually points out something that I hadn't seen that's really cool. I want a sign to say "I see it and it's really cool - thanks." I've tried giving a thumbs up, but got roundly criticized by my son since it's the signal to ascend. I've tried clapping my hands together towards the person that pointded it out, but can't do that too well when holding a camera.
So any thoughts on an appropriate one handed sign?

A big C with your thumb and forefinger. WAY cool is doing it with both hands.

Alternatively, if you want to give a signal to suggest you're not very impressed...

1) Spread arms out wide
2) repeatedly move right hand to left hand and away, as though handing out playing cards from a deck

= BIG DEAL

For added insult, add the following step between 1 and 2. Insert right hand forefinger through O formed by left hand thumb and forefinger.

= BIG F#@?ING DEAL
