  5. PNG is a target rich environment. Check out part one of my trip report with lots of wide angle photos. http://www.uwphotogr...inea-mv-febrina
  6. Are you willing to just sell one? If not, will you take anything less on the pair. I am in the US and not sure how much shipping would run, but I would need them in the next couple of weeks. Thanks
  7. Mark, Thanks for sharing and I know you have a lot mre great shots. I remember when I saw that shark/moray shot right after you downloaded and it looked just that good so I can confirm that very little if any was done to it. You posistioned yourself patiently there and waited for sharks to come by. The shark swimming through the school is also a great one. Next time I will take more time and be a little patient to set up shots like these. Your results are stunning. Your sense of humor, laugh and conversation really added to the trip. Hope to see you again on a trip. Keep me posted. Ron
  8. Ludovic, I couldn't wait to see you images especially of the dolphins because of your incredible free diving ability. Your presentation of the images with the two musical themes was enchanting and I thank you for sharing them with us and allowing me to daydream a little this morning about our trip together. You captured the essence of the trip and the fun we hade diving with the sharks and dolphins. Hope to run into you again on another trip in the future. Take care my firend. Ron
  9. Thanks Steve, Just noticed you are in Tucson. I am up the road just outside of PHX. Hot enough for you. Sure makes me wish I was in those nice cool waters again.
  10. And finally a few shots from Blue Heron Bridge. A truly special muck dive in our backyard. I could dive that every day at high tide and never get bored. Very cool. James said to include pictures of the people on the trip and I realized I forgot to include one of our fearless leader. Comments on images are appreciated, especially the new species of tripus leadarious (aka James). This little hermit crab left his shell and took over this CRACK PIPE as a home. Just say no to CRACK my little friend! James found him and actually brought him over to me to see. When I set him down, a snapper could see him through the glass and would bite at him, but Mr crab was safe in his own little biosphere. Hillarious. Someone must have thrown the crack pipe over the bridge and didn't even know they were providing habiatat for this little guy. You are a Rock Star James! Ron Watkins
  11. Some more macro sharks and the ever popular lemon snaps: The last two shots were shot with the 105 macro lens. Something different that Brian (captain) and James said to try on at least one dive and glad I did. Never would have thought to do macro sharks. All of the snaps were with the 10.5. Ron Watkins
  12. James, Thanks for getting this thread started and leading such a wonderful trip. I enjoyed your company as well as the rest of the group. We had a nice diverse team and we all learned something from each other on photography, diving, marine life and life in general. My favorite water things on the trip were - two nights and over 4 hours of snorkeling with the dolphins at night (and clearing the pool after spotting a large tiger circling below us) - Daytime snorkeling with dolphins even though I need to buy some better fins and learn to hold my breadth like Lud and Cal - Lemon Snaps and the many near misses - shooting the lemons at dusk on the surface with the golden light - Macro photography of the lemons with my 105mm - my rare (at least on our trip) close encounters with tigers - Time spent with James photographing before the trip and the Blue Heron Bridge (it really is our local lembeh). The only bummer on the trip was that Jim Abernathy was not on board, but the crew of Brian, Mike, Grey and Ed were great and made sure we got put in the right sposts for the action and everyone came home with all of their body parts and well fed. Here is a quick sampling of some of my favorite shots. I will divide them in a couple of posts because of the size limit: Here are some Dolphins: Ron Watkins Nikon D200/300 housed in S&S with S&S 110alpha strobes (used Tokina 10-17, 10.5, 12-24, 105 on this trip but most with 10-17 that James convinced me to buy the day before the trip)
