Hi Ed, well done! Are all these taken with your G9 single strobe setup? I really like your web page layout, very professional. The new shots of the mating blue rings are special. Great capture. Thanks for sharing. :blink:

Thanks for the kind words, Steve! :)
Yup, those are taken with my G9 & single Inon Z240 strobe (except the WA shots, taken with Canon S80). My web page is done by my wifey and she's the one that designed and setting it up. :D
Once again, thanks!

Nice catch on the bluerings mating. I like the one strobe lighting effects for the macro shot, esp the pipefish.
I assume you are using the Inon 165 closeup stacked for some of those shots? I would've backed up to get the mating more in frame as well. You get more DOF that way.
