Hi All,

This is the best of the 1st nudibranch pics that i took recently.

- Location - South Coast NSW, Australia
- Equipment Used - Olympus e-410, Ikelite housing, 14 - 42 mm lens, natural light
- Post Processing Description (optional) - None (other than the resize of the pic)
- Camera Settings - 1/60 sec @ f 4.5, 21mm focal length, ISO 100, -7/10 EV


Any feedback, good and bad, would be appreciated.

I am fairly new at taking photos underwater with a DSLR and would love any hints or tips regarding photos at this distance with this equipment.
Any hints on post-processing this picture would be welcomed.

Thanks
Evan

That's a pretty nudi. My suggestion would be to get closer to your subject and if you can, shoot from lower angle. Try to get on the same level (providing you don't disturb the surrounding corals) or even shoot up if you can.

You might crop a bit to accomplish two things:

1 - Highlight the nudi more

2 - Eliminate the out of focus foreground as it is a little distracting

Good advice about the next time ... closer and lower ... and when you think you are close enough ... take a shot or two ... and then try and see if you can't get even a little closer ... obviously being mindful of the reef and surrounding environs ...
