Hi Guys,


So had my SLR about 6 months and recently got my underwater setup in the last 4 weeks,


Using a 7D, NA-7D, Tokina 10-17mm with Zen mini dome, 100mm Macro and dual Inon Z240's,


I work on Dhaalu Atoll, just posting some pictures for feedback basically,


I am still on the learning curve but am quite pleased with results thus far....


These are the recent WA shots,








I have found WA soo soo much fun!! 
I love the DSLR land,

Hey Luke,

Congrats on a great setup,  :good:   Not sure what you are using to process your images but if you're using ACR or Lightroom you can try going into the HSL (hue saturation and Luminance) tool and grabbing the aqua slider to pull down that sometimes annoying fringe around the sun.  




Your images are looking great, have fun!
