Hi Carlos,

my favourit is # 3.

 

I´m thinking about going to Lanzarote in Summer 2011.

 

Were did you take the pics?

 

A friend of us has a dive operation in Costa Teguise and we want to dive with him.

 

Are there some good spots around!

 

Regards

Hi Carlos,

 

I also favour no.3, but will add that no.2 has some excellent body language.

 

Great work!

Talk to us, Carlos. Bumblebee shrimp are tiny! What lens combination? How much are the images cropped?

 

Nice shots. I like number 4. Nice that you got the shots with the shrimp on the cucumber.

Hi Carlos!

 

I think blue adds alot to the picture and gives a sence of depth, so I would go with something like that.

The diagonal on the last image works well for me, alltough some backscatter on these sharp images are like splinters in my eyes :)

 

Favourite is #4 and #3 is allso quite good!

 

Cheers

Karel

I prefer #2-the hot spot on the shrimps claw arm detracts for me too much in #3.

 

Saying that, I wish that I had taken all of them!

great series Carlos, well done. After looking at them all several times, I decided that I like #1 the best

Really focuses on the shrimp. Like it a lot.

 

Great shots.

at first glance i would have said #3, but looking at them closer i now say #2. something about the negative space does it for me...

I saw my first Bumblebee Shrimp in St Vincent a month ago. They are tiny, and these shots are stunning. Well done, thanks for posting those.

 

I can't pick a favorite.

I like # 2 only because it appears to me that the eyes are sharper and the others seem to have the claws (or paws as my kid calls them) tack sharp. Might just be my dirty contacts though!

 

Great shots. Great color. Great job.
