This is a slide show from a trip to the Revillagigedos in May of this year.

Socorro, May 2011

We saw the usual sharks and Mantas. In addition we had a whale shark that stayed with us at Roca Partida most of the day.

It looks like a great trip!

Have you tried converting your ambient light images into monochrome? I think it works quite well:

Yes, I have Silver Efex Pro. I usually shoot wide angle with the thought that I might try the shot in B&W.

I've done some diving with a master B&W underwater photog. He always talks about converting the image to B&W, where to doge and burn the image, and shoot vertical.
Leaving room for a publisher to add print.

Haven't worked on the images from this trip yet.
