Find a way to do some more UW photography! Great shots. I think I like the off center Octopus eye the best.
Just call in sick and go diving ;)
Tell us a little about post processing. What do you use, cropping, and special programs for sharpening, etc.? (If any.)
I think along with camera info we could all learn from what everybody does with their images (if they will give away their secrets!).
In fact I think I will try a thread to that effect. :)

I shot in NEF (the raw of Nikon) file format + JPG fine, usually I process the Nef files with Capture NX (the Nikon's software) and then Photoshop for fine tuning but some of the images that I have posted are process with Photoshop directly by original JPG.

Usually I don't use the crop, when I crop not over the 10% of the original image; and I work to by level for contrat, brightness and unsharp mask not more.

The crop of the Octupus is directly made underwater.

Thanks Cristian,
Your Blenny(?) shot with the 105mm, to get full face, means you were ~ 15-20 cms. Nice work.
Can't get a Lipstick Blenny (Caribbean) to sit that still but now you have set a good challenge!

Thanks!

I hope to have a good eye, I'm a professional photographer (interior, still life and wedding).
