Hey Wetpixel,

We just finished the Wetpixel Komodo Expedition Part 2.  We also LOVED Cannibal Rock, and spent a lot of time there.  The vessel Seven Seas was great, and we ended up with good conditions for most of the trip.  Here are a few photos to start...

Here are a couple more beach photos from Padar Island.  This place was stunning and I truly wish I made more time for beach exploring during sunsets and sunrises.  The first photo was done with about a 30 second exposure and some light painting on the rocks in the foreground with a sola light, and the Seven Seas boat is lit up in the background. Of course, the diving in Padar is also stunning.  : )

Here's a few more pictures from the first trip:

 

Firstly three wide-angle scenes that show (I hope) just how rich with life the area is!

We were not on the WP trip but were on the same itinerary as they were on the second half,  but we were on the Cheng Ho. We saw the Seven Seas both right out of Labuan Bajo and in Horseshoe Bay. We were extremely lucky in Wainilu to see both the Melibe papillosa and the Melibe colemani. Here is a shot of the papillosa which I think is the only nudi that carries his/her own eggs.
