Topics I've Started

D200/Micro-Nikkor 70-180 plus 6T/Tulamben Macro

03 December 2007 - 04:41 AM

The critters seemed to be out in force at Tulamben! I did 7 dives over two days last week and even though the viz. was unusually mediocre, there never seemed to be a lack of macro subject matter. Here are a few images. All were taken with the Nikon D200, Micro-Nikkor 70-180 plus Nikon 6T close-up lens. Some cropping.:oops:

The rest can be seen at reef.smugmug.com

Crab ID help please

I'd be grateful for some help in identifying these two crabs from the Tulamben area, Bali. The images were taken last weekend. Thanks!
Michael.

D200/Tulamben & Seraya

06 January 2007 - 01:15 AM

I spent two photo days in Bali, specifically diving at Tulamben and Seraya. Here are a few samples. The rest can be seen on my BLOG at

I couldn't ask for better conditions with calm seas, good weather and viz. between 20-30 metres.

A special thank you to Tony Medcraft and my favourite dive guide, Made, at Tulamben Wreck Divers Resort, where I stayed and dived with.

All photos were taken with the Nikon D200, Micro-Nikkor 70-180mm plus Nikon 6T, housed in a NEXUS housing, twin INON strobes wired through a Sea&Sea TTL converter. Everything worked magically, after I worked out a few user error issues.

Most post-processing was done using Nikon Capture NX, which I recently bought in Hong Kong.

Cheers.
Michael.
