Hi Starbuck, sorry for the delay in responding. The Atlas is off the coast of North Carolina. You can see it's location and read more about it here:

The sand tigers were great - we could swim up to within 4 feet of them and they'd just ignore us. And if we sat still, they'd swim by within 2 to 3 feet. You can see more photos from the trip and a video of the sharks on the Atlas in the gallery section of www.regionalscuba.com

Your pictures look great, Michael. Thanks for the advice everyone, the Microdrive worked great, and saving in RAW format does preserve a lot of detail. I just got back and am reasonably pleased with the results (considering I'm very new to underwater photography in general). Here's one of my favorites, a sand tiger on the wreck of the Atlas (there were TONS of them).

Next year I have get a bigger strobe (I'm using a Sea and Sea YS 90DX, controlled by Matthias Heinrichs's TTL adapter).

For what it's worth, if you can find an image taken with a flash of the same fish in the same setting (or something you know to be similar), you can match the color fairly well using Photoshop. It may not be completely accurate, but it's better than nothing.

Just open both images (your photo and the one you'll be matching), select your image and go Image>Adjustments>Match Color... Under "Source", select the flash image and it'll do it's magic.

This took about 15 seconds...
