So, my first diving vacation is over, and I'd really appreciate some feedback on a few of the pictures I got.

The location was the small island Ustica north of Palermo in Sicilia, Italy, and the equipment was my brand new rig, bought this spring: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with M Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6 in a Nauticam NA-EM5 with the 4" semidome port and one Inon Z240 on 5" + 7" arms.
 
All the thumbnails are clickable to get to the large version.

Hi  partner,

I'm really liking the Barracuda image and the stinger shot.  Both are really nicely composed to my eye.  Like most of us, you might think about getting closer to your subjects on images like your  moray and grouper.  Looks like you had a great time and did a great job for the first dives with the new rig.  Congrats!

 

Cheers,

Steve

Don't I know! :notworthy:  Problem was, neither the moray nor the grouper had heard about "Get as close as you can. And then even closer", so they turned tail when I tried to get closer :angry2: 
 

Looks like you had a great time and did a great job for the first dives with the new rig.  Congrats!

I sure had a great time, and thanks again :)
