Very nice shots. Great job.
My first trip to Indonesia was to Wakatobi, and it was a real eye-opener. Having been to Raja Ampat a couple of times and other Indo-Pacific destinations, I rank it a little bit lower than some other locations, although I still have great memories of lots of wonderful dives.
Thanks Erwin. It was pretty much the consensus of our travel group, many of whom had visited other Indo locations, that Wakatobi was a great location, with wonderful staff and facilities, and great diving by any standard, but still not as diverse and creature intense as Raja, Komodo, or Banda. It's worth a visit on it's own merits, there aren't many places where you are as well cared for and well fed, but for hard core photographers who can't manage frequent trips to Asia, there may be better choices. And, it's pretty expensive.
