I found these two porcelain crabs on a night dive a couple of weeks ago. I love the colors, but the flat lighting leaves me feeling a little blah. They were tucked well into their soft coral hosts so the strobe light is very diffuse. I have done very little editing of either shot, just tweaked the contrast a bit. Any suggestions to bring a little more punch into these?
I shot these at a site that is normally still as a pond, but 10 minutes into the dive a stiff current started making macro photography impossible, so I should be happy with any result at all. I failed to nail the focus on the eye of the first crab (blame the current, yeah, that must have been it!) but am happy with the second. Shot with the Olympus 60mm lens.
