    They work for me. Nice pic's I'm not an expert, but they look good to me. Some have "back scatter" and others could have been taken a little closer to get better detail. But, they look good to me.

    i especialy like the barracooda and the fish wall, really nice.
    Some close to the reef pics look like the stobe has been a little bright for your settings.... depending on how your set up works its probably just a matter of going up an F stop or 2, or maybe reducing the strobe power . Taking a few shots of the same scene with different settings & experimenting is helping me improve.

    I am guessing you are using a Point-and-Shoot camera with built in flash. The flash is very harsh and because it is coming directly from the front hear the lens, you are getting alot of backscatter. This can only be fixed by getting a strobe that is out to the side and can be angled correctly to prevent the backscatter. Also, using Photoshop to remove some of the backscatter would help.

    From a compostion standpoint, your best shots are those that are angled upwards. The sea fan, the snappers in the arch, etc. As a general rule, shooting upwards will provide better composition and depth. Shooting downwards will flatten an image.

    Thanks...I am shooting the DC1000 maxx kit. I have 2 strobes with that but I am still learning how to use the strobes. Any suggestions on how to position the strobes to reduce scatter? What do you do in photoshop to remove it? Thanks a bunch everyone!
