  1. Thanks Quinn. I can see some small pores now that you pointed them out. I was looking for your image.
  2. Thanks for all the help and the making me feel better that I was not the only one having problems with this. Here's a close up shot. I don't see the pores like in Quinn's closeups.
  3. Sorry, that's the only photo.
  4. I've been having trouble discerning between some corals and sponges especially with sponges that don't have many external openings. I was going by some pictures in the Humann/Deloach books. Here's another example https://reefguide.org/carib/pixhtml/lettucecoral1.html
  5. I'm having a hard time with this one. Can anyone confirm this is a type of Lettuce Coral? Thanks
  6. It's interesting how confusing identifying some corals and sponges can be. I was leaning to Star Coral as well until Quinn came up with Sponge.
  7. Thanks for the answer and the reference Quinn. It was the Orange color that threw me off. The Human/Deloach books I have did not mention there could be an orange variety.

  9. I'm stumped at trying to identify this. I originally thought it was a sponge but now suspect it's a coral. However, I can't find a match for either. Thanls
  10. Having problems putting a name to this from Human/DeLoach's books. Thanks
  11. ChrisRoss, the 50,000K shot is the one with the diver holding the slate. There is a tiny spot of red on the left hand diver that doesn't appear in the size of the picture I had to upload. Here it is from a screen scrape of LR.
  12. I'm trying to understand what is happening here. The picture with the mooring bits (Colour Loss.JPG) has the left picture taken without flash (as shot) and with flash on the right. The WB for each is 5,800 and 7,450 The picture of the rear of the wreck (Colour Loss 2.JPG) has the left picture 'as shot' and with WB selected in LR from the white card held by the diver on the right. The WB's are 5,900 and 50,000 (as calculated by LR) Is the 50,000 an anomaly with LR? I can't get my head around what 50,000K means? Thanks
  13. Sorry, this appears to be a beautiful picture created by Jorge Abalo. See https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/jorge-abalo and Google "jorge abalo coral reef"
  14. This was posted by Harry Bushwitz (https://www.facebook.com/HarryBushwitz) on FB but no other details. Anyone have any idea of what it's called?
