Hi Wetpixellers,

Have at last finished my shortish video from our recent trip to Ambon, in Indonesia. I thought some of you might like a look and to dream of warm waters!!

Have a great Christmas one and all,


Jo. x

Excellent macro work.

What diopter lens do you use? Or is that just native zoom?

Regards
Peter

Thanks Peter. :0)

I was using the inon 165 and 330 wet lenses, sometimes stacked. I'm really enjoying shooting macro subjects when I can.....the eyes ain't what they used to be, so it's great to see all the details when I get back and upload it to a big screen.

LOL I think a few of us know that feeling Jo!

Great work and a really lovely portrait of underwater Ambon. It looks very interesting indeed! :)

Cheers, Simon

Nice work Jo. Great advert for Ambon! My favorite shots were around 7:40 - 7:50. The moray suddenly appearing, and then the moray in the blanket.
