hmmm... looks not bad.... not in position to offer any comments but I would like to have the 3rd picture, I mean the original file.
Would like to try PSing on it further....

I especially like your 5th picture... it would be fantastic if theres a little sun burst on the top. I have mixed feelings about the nudi picture, nice exposure but maybe the front is too well lid and the subject is white... just find it uncomfortable.... but there's many award picture I found uneasy too anyway... The sea fan looks abit tight..

Thanks Goondo for your comments, :) my personal favourites are #5 and #9. I do concur that with a sun burst the #5 will stand out more. The only problem is that it was a dawn dive :cry:

As for #9, yeah i do think the front is too well lit, it will stand out more without the well lit part, i.e dark like the background.

Yes #7 is tight, the sea fan is huge, i knew if i shot i nlandscape orientation, i wouldn't be able to light it properly, yeah time for a second strobe.

yeah uneven, was trying to minimise backscatter and lighting sea fan properly; which is damn hard. :sweat:

Yes it is that strobe.

Yeah the pose is nice. Now that is the good part about diving with a male model ;) . Even his bouyancy and breath holding skills are absolutely superb. :embrass:

Yeah appaling part is the hair.... water proof gel?? :sweat: ;) :bsmilie:
Heh.. Ribena et all

The black thing beside the Nudibranch is a type of sponge. Which co-incincidently is what that species feeds on.

Last photo??? wonder who that is.... :D

Sigh... such wonderful photos... (kng frantically trashes his...) As usual, Waisj sets the high standards for the rest of us to aspire to and learn from. :thumbsup:

Photo 4 of clownfish: I like the framing and composition. Lovely that all the fish are looking at the camera.

Photo 6 of shrimp on cushion starfish: Personally, i feel that the red colour of the shrimp is too similar to that of the underlying starfish, and that the shrimp doesn't stand out. Perhaps shooting the shrimp against blue water may be better?

Dtan, i think the hair on the female model (photo 10) is WAY WAY HIGHER than the guy's hair... must ask her where she permed her hair to make it so "pong pong"... :devil:

But agree with you that Waisj is quite good at u/w portraiture. I volunteer next time to be the assistant to hold the reflector. ;p

So looks are still more important huh? Ok got your message. We'll all sign up with u, and back out the last min so u get to dive with M1 = M5

Waisj, how come the pics look slightly exposed (the whites) to me? perhaps the manual controller is better huh, can tune up and down. Have you sent your strobe to US ? if not u gotta beg, steal , borrow for the June trip.
