In Topic: PNG: Tawali versus Walindi/Febrina

05 December 2017 - 10:00 AM

I only know Tawali so far (last trip in March) and would go back anytime.

Lawadi is fantastic or macro, I have never seen such a beautifully lit divesite such as Deacon's reef and the reefs around are simply splendid with a cornucopia of pristine hard corals.

I'd probably book a short liveaboard on the Spirit of NewGuinea, ( Tawali's own liveaboard) in order to explore the outer reefs and Samarai area, additionally to dving the local reefs from Tawali resort.


Here are some UW photos I posted on this board (and more in my Flickr account, -click below- ) :  http://wetpixel.com/...60247&hl=tawali



In Topic: nummifer, coccineus, other Lembeh frogfish?

I may be wrong, but to me it looks more like a regular Giant Frogfish, Antennarius commersoni, with the think and bulby second spine.

It has a distinct tail base which leaves aside any Coccineus id. I cannot either find the distinct lure and first spine of the mummifer.

Definitely not berthelina which is like this :

To me it's a sea snail, not a nudibranch nor  headshield slug.

In Topic: Lightroom Classic CC and CC workflow advice

But when did it become monthly then, I'm sure I bought a licence for another one after LR3, but nothing on Adobe records. Haven't used Photoshop in years now, tis a good deal tho, but thinking I could cope

you still could have a standalone license before last October release.

I think the monthly CC license for LR started in 2015 from LR6 on but until last month you could select either a license purchase or a monthly use.
