In Topic: Anyone know this fish?

I am no expert but it looks like a Reef Croaker (Odontoscion dentex) to me.  It is in Humann (page 417, in my edition) and here:  http://biogeodb.stri...es/species/3796.  The black spot at the base of the pectoral fin, the non-forked tail, and possibly the laid down first dorsal are probably the keys to the ID.

In Topic: TTL Flash Control by Sony Rx100-III

I have a Sony NEX-5N and single Inon Z-240 strobe connected by fiber optics.  Most of the time I have the camera in manual and use the sTTL mode on the strobe.  For shots where the strobe is the main source of light I do not get a lot of over-exposures unless there is a lot of white in the picture.   I do get over-exposures frequently when shooting over white sand, etc. where the ambient light is high since I am slow at increasing the shutter speed to values where the strobe won't sink.  Previously, I used a Nikon 105 strobe with an adapter and electrical connection.  This gave me a lot of over-exposures because the Nikon 105 is quite slow at shutting off compared to the Z-240 so couldn't mimic the camera output very well.

I am a very rank amateur with respect to underwater photography and editing but here is what I got in a few minutes with Elements 12 trying to follow Alex's editing comments.
