#342664 Night dive in Curacao

Posted by Fireflys on 31 January 2014 - 09:01 AM

This was one of many great night dives in Curacao and we found it particularly rewarding due to the amount of octopus out on the reef most of which were sporting a fabulous array of colours, all pictures were taken with an OM-D E-M5 in Nauticam housing.

 

This colourful guy seemed to be trying to stare down the christmas tree worm:

We also stumbled across this little guy doing his best to hide:

This took us by surprise.

This very friendly tompot came straight out settled on us several times, a little worrying when it was near the face especially after seeing the teeth on Alex's images however he/she showed no aggression and sure made the dive for us.

#335492 Processing ambient light images - Color Balance question

Hi Steve,

 

             If this is what you are looking for then it's available as a 'one click' option if set up as a PS 'Action', I've used your manta shot as an example.

I've found it to work on some but not all 'overblue' shots I've tried it on, instructions on how to are here:

I'd like to see a few more of those manta images.
