Hello again folks,


Two of my images managed to place in the Irish 'Clean Coasts Photo Competition'-2013.




While I fully admit they are not exceptional UW images (God knows- you guys set the bar that I am trying to aspire to), am again really humbled and delighted to have made placings in two categories- one image of which ie. Compass Jellyfish, was entered on the basis of positive feedback I received here on wetpixel previously.


So just wanted to share with you, and again, many thanks to all you gals and guys here, and to my uw photo brothers and sisters back home- for continued encouragement and  inspiration.



Go n-eiri an ta libh and happy shooting

Hi folks,

As always, any constructive criticisms greatfully recieved and appreciated




ps. I put in an unedited image- straight out of camera- for comparison.

Facebook thoughts

28 July 2013 - 12:28 AM

Hi folks,


I have a facebook page where I regularly post up pictures of my underwater photo shots, because I like to share them with friends.  I have restrictions set in my facebook site re: sharing etc etc.....but am still wondering how 'safe' am I?


I use lightroom's web function to make a watermark 'web image' and this is what I use when I post.

I enclose a sample of what I do put up on my facebook, with the watermark etc., but if you think I could improve on anything  I'd appreciate on any sage advice.


Many thanx in advance
