D200/Tulamben & Seraya

Recommended Posts

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.

Interesting (but excellent) background for those harlequin shrimp :D...

 

Remember for best results on the web to convert to sRGB colorspace...some really nice work.

Fantastic photography there -- well done! Twin spot lionfish are actually very common if you go to the far reef at Seraya! You cna even shoot them with gorgeous bright coloured sponge backgrounds!

Hi Matt,

How do the colours appear now?

 

As far as the Harlequin Shrimp are concerned, I shot them as I found them. However, of course I can't speak for the group of photographers who were there several minutes before me. :D

Really nice shots, thanks for sharing!

 

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

 

I stayed there too about four years ago. I am thinking of coming back there and was trying to remember the name of the guide but couldn't, but now I do, it was Made too, the best one I had in Tulamben (and anywhere else), very knowledgeable and a really nice person.

P.S.: When you don't convert to sRGB the colors look a bit on the cool side...
