  1. Hi Everyone, Thanks for your comments on my "Happy Little Puffer" shot. They were very helpful and I was thinking the same thing myself about the background, wishing there was less of it. Now I have some things to work on for this shot and future shots thanks to your suggestions. I do have one thought about the use of flash in this shot and the affect of the puffer's eyes. I wanted to keep that blue-green iridescence of this particular puffers corneas. Many of the puffers I've seen in Cozumel have that green-yellow shade and lack the iridescence. I read somewhere that age may have something to do with it. Would using flash change how the eyes looked? Thanks much. Linda
  2. Hello everyone, I am a very novice underwater photographer taking "point and shoot photos" for the past 5 years. All my photography has been with the Canon G-series cameras in the Canon case (no external strobes). I'm at a point where I would like to up my game and have just purchased the G16. I'm contemplating a strobe purchase. This photo of the Juvenile Porcupine Pufferfish was one of my first photos with the Canon G16. Taken about 5 meters in natural light in Cozumel. I've done post editing (crop, sharpen, white balance, and minimal back scatter removal with healing brush). I thought it was one of my lifetime best underwater photos...but then nobody likes to call their baby "ugly". One of the areas where I struggle is the post processing...I try to get the color as true as possible but I'm very aware that we don't see the true color of the fish without the aid of artificial light and I'm shooting with ambient light. Would some of you "expert" photogs please give me some feedback on my photo and my post processing? Any advice welcome. :-) Thanks so much...Linda
