Hey Guys,

I had a great trip to Indonesia, but had a leak that made it so that I couldn't use the strobes. So these shots were taken with just a focus light (Fisheye halogen) and a D70. I will, if I can get some shots together, post some available light shots later. Here, a couple shots taken with just the focus light at large apertures ...

...both shots on night dives with a AF (no focus knob) 60mm f2.8. Queries and comments most welcome.

Nice shots.

I have nightmares about strobes failing. It looks like you managed very well, though.
