Hi all,

Just got back from a week's diving in Tulamben Bali - what a great dive site and I had a ball.

Anyway here are a couple of my favourites and I hope you like them to 8-)

hey Karl - the photos are looking good. nice colors and exposures. I'm glad you had a nice time in Tulamben, it's one of my favorite places to dive.l

Now that you have that down, I would work on different compositions, and trying to photograph interesting marine life behavior.

Nice work Karl.
Camera and settings would help in passing on any tips.
Like Scott points out, time to work on composition.
The crab is my favorite.
