  1. Hi All, Have updated my album - can be seen here http://www.homepage.mac.com/ronboyes/PhotoAlbum3.html
  2. Hi Drew, This angle is the one then - just need the mouth open, never seem to be in the correct position when it happens or you are checking your air - been in scuba jail before by staying with a shark too long and missing one of the deco stops. 2 computers now one is attached to my camera. I have a rod, I use it for keeping of the bottom in the muck - it doesn't go near anyones butt
  3. Hi All, When you take this shot what angle have you found to be most effective? ps. Alex, no prodding, poking or handling, I promise - just patience thanks Ron
  4. Hi Alex, Guilty as charged. I turned around and the dive guide showed me the falling octo, I suspect you are correct that the critter was "helped" although I didn't actually see it. As for Michael's image I had not seen that before, therefore was not trying to copy it. Lembeh was quiet and I think this puts a lot of pressure on the guides to show something, I agree with you that the guides are becoming more aggressive towards the marine life than was the case several years ago. I shall be returning in August and will pay close attention to way the guides are treating the marine life and will do my bit to persuade them against this practice. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Regards Ron
  5. Thanks for the kind comment - using the 70-180 I didn't get a choice, Here is a second shot a little further away - forgive the down and dirty adjustments
  6. The 4000 is an A2 printer and is 2 yo - condition is excellent and have a selection of spare ink carts included. Asking price is Aust $800.00 Please note that this large format printer and is very bulky and heavy and would not be suitable to ship. I live in Adelaide, South Australia. Please contact me via email ron@rgbintegration.com if you are interested. Regards Ron Boyes www.imagesdownunder.com.au
  7. Hi All, Taken 2 weeks ago in Lembeh - I kind of like the composition compared to the usual sand shots. What are your comments. Image taken with D2X, 70-180mm, 2 x Inon Z220 1/100@F11 Thanks Ron
  8. I shall be in Kasawari Feb 23-27 that's pretty close. Maybe we can catch up for a beer. regards ron
  9. Hi Jeff, I understand that this resort is in the "middle" of a local village - any problems?? noise etc Any additional info would be appreciated as I have stayed at KBR many times in the past. Thanks Ron
  10. Hi All, Will be going to Lembeh end of Feb and would like a comparison between KBR, Lembeh Resort and Kasawari - I have stayed several times at KBR so I am aware of the facilities they offer - How do the other 2 compare to them. I would prefer to book a private guide and boat. Thanks Ron
  11. Hi All, This is what happens when you have a macro lens on, fortunately I was able to return to the boat and change lens. Image taken off Malaysia last week. regards ron
  12. Hi All, After reading the recent posts about this unit, I have a couple of Questions: 1. Charging - can this be done using a laptop USB port? 2. Can you connect an external Hard Drive to this unit to transfer the files without using a laptop? Thanks ron
  13. Lembeh Strait Dive Site - Critter Hunt and TK2 I was lucky as we had 4 differnt colors during the week I was there August. regards ron
  14. Thank you for your kind comments -I shall be entering the Moray shot in the Beneath the sea comp - we will see how it goes. Regards ron
  15. Hi All, Just returned from Gunung Api - what an incredible dive site. I plan to return next year and I hope your comments will assist in getting a better image with respect to lighting, composition etc. Camera - D2X - Lens 70-180 Zoom at 130mm 1/60 @ F16 Strobes 2 x Inon 220's Additional images here - http://www.imagesdownunder.com.au/latest.html thanks ron
