Hello everyone,

 

With a lot of good advice from people on this forum I purchased my first DSLR and housing a few weeks ago and have just done a weeks diving in Bali in Tulamben. Ive posted my best shots on Flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/fontainedento...57620514074484/.

 

All shots taken with Canon 500D, 60mm lens, s and s ys-27 strobe.

 

Here are a couple im most proud of:

Nice set. Fontaine.

I think #4 is Crinoid clingfish.

Fantastic shots Fontaine

I especially like the Samurai Nudi nice composition

 

Tulamben's a special place, where did you stay?

 

I saw you got some shots of the Liberty's resident 'Cuda, Christian Loader and I dived together there in April and he managed to get him to mouth his domeport, the shot won this weeks POTW comp.

Takes some "bottle" to let those teeth get that close to your face, having said that I watched Christian poo himself an hour later when he was attacked by a Titan Triggerfish on Tulamben Drop Off,

I laughed away 100bar ....... Priceless :angry:

 

Thankyou for sharing.

Very nice pictures!

Some of them could maybe use a little backscatter removal, but thats just my opinion.

Samurai is really a winner!!

We stayed at Scuba Seraya and had a great experience, my wife and I had our own personal dive guide even though there were other diving guests, free baby sitter for our nine month old on last minute demand whenever we wanted to dive, the macro life was pretty amazing and the dive guide was spot on.

 

I saw that pic of the cuda in the POTW and was like damn why didnt i think of doing that, cant believe its actually the same bloody fish!

 

Thanks for the comments!

 

 

 

 

Tis a small world for us divers!

I just returned from Komodo and was looking through my photographs...this one totally surprised me, because I was taking a picture of the purple sea squirt, and never saw the green nudibranch until it was up on my monitor. Crazy stuff. I call it the "Accidental Nudi" and have identified it as a Nembrotha Cristata based on similar photos found here on wetpixel.
