Great photo of the Squat Lobster. How did you even notice such a tiny thing as you were swimming?

I visited your photo gallery as well. Nice stuff there. I may be ordering a couple in a larger size (I don't want to "steal" your work).

Awesome shots. I love the hanging coral. I'm not sure what camera/light you use, but the pictures look really professional.

Great job!! Love to dark blue water. What is the trick? F-stop or shutter speed?

i seem to like either relly clise up or quite wide




thanks for the feedback all , it is good to get the opinion of others.
in most of my shots i use shutter speed to expose the background and f stop and strobe to expose the foreground .
The PJ Shark was f3.2 1/250th iso 100 i was actually trying to controll the blow out of the sunball .

re the squat lobster
i found him on one of our Muck diving sites called The Scallop Beds,,, we have little trees of dough boy scallops and sponges there and at some spots they are coverd with squat lobsters at other times it is nudibranch city
this is what the scallop beds look like
