Nicely shot, what time of year was this. Personally, I think I would have liked to have seen more diversity of marine life in the video. Just felt that there was too much Manta footage. Using the cartoon effect was pretty effective but a keyframe out of it to the actual footage would work better than a jump cut to another manta.

Thanks a lot for your advice,

I understand what you mean about diversity, and length of the sequences:
In fact, this video is just a quick edit from a twenty minutes, I removed several complete sequences but didn't alter the ones I kept - This is probably a mistake -.
(I wanted to avoid a kind of "quick inventory")

These images were shot in February 2011, on a 12 days cruise (the only thing we really missed was a few whale sharks)


sorry for my poor "google english"
