This little (err.. not so little) fella is as kind as a puppy---a Pitbull if you stick your hand in his cave.

Great job Laz. I really like the composition of this one; the contras of the mostly white eel against the black background, and the coral framing the picture. It may have been even better if you got the strobe lighting a little more even or gotten
the hot spot at his eyes and mouth instead of half way down his body, but I'm just being very picky here. Nice shot!

Thanks Herb! I agree, the lighting was the flaw in the photograph. Strobe placement seems to be one of the toughest things to work with. Although to my defense I must say that the crevice where this little fella was hiding was only large enough to fit the PT-010 case. Now, if only Ike, Sea&Sea, or some other strobe manufacturer would make a good, powerful strobe that's the size of the UK mini flashlight size with a 150 degree coverage. Ike?
