Those are all really great shots, but by far, my favorite picture is of the white and purple Jelly. Outstanding! Could you give us a hint your lighting technique on that one?

What a great set of photos. I love all of the colorful soft coral shots with the great backlighting.

OMG, you suck!! Sooooo much. I'll never, ever get shots like your's. As my son said,"You've got the eye."

What is this thing? It is beautiful.
What is this?

thanks guys. I know i bitched about wakatobi, and I still feel the same, but the reefs are beautiful, and worth protecting. Im at work today and cant get flicker here, so when I get home ill see what "that thing" is.

trash any? ha ha. thirty dives maybe 3 to 4 keepers per dive is about 100 keepers. I stand by what I said. The pictures dont change the experience. Anyway everyone is entitled to their opinions, thats why the're opinions. Most people on the trip were very happy with everything

When I first opened your album, I thought all 400+ photos were from Wakatobi. Now I see that they are from other places too. Even so, you are an incredible photographer.

Hey MrBubbles, I love this shot... "Wak resort flikr 4 08 (27)" the on of the jellyfish. Any chance you remember some details of the location where you took this? Depth? Water temperature? Proximity to a river?

Awesome shots!
