Congrats Gavin,
Isn't it great to be able to post pictures! I'm loving the first one, great color and very balanced light. Komodo is such a wonderous place, which boat were you on? Was it everything you expected?

Totally agree with Steve. The first one is pleasing to the eyes. Nice colours and good lighting. I return to Komodo in September and seeing these makes me want to go now.

Thanks Guys, Steve I was on the Indo Siren a very well setup boat for liveaboard. Damo yes a flying gunard on a night dive. Conditions were tough for photography however there are definitely some very interesting things underwater. You tend to get a sense of the strong prevailing currents when you start seeing regular surface swirls as you head out to the dive sites!
