    Underwater macro

    Hi All,

    Here are a few shots I have done. Please let me know what you think.

    Cheers - Deb

    Can anybody tell me how to make the photo's bigger on the screen. It doesn't appear to be a straight forward way to upload the photo's at the first time going through they didn't even load and I had to go into manage images area and download from there and then they only seem to load as thumbnails. What am I doing wrong?

    MOD Edit:
    You are missing this bit; How to make an attached thumbnail appear larger and inline, here:

    While both are good shots, I especially like the second image...

    I know it sounds a tad trite, but if you go back to the tutorial on how to load images, you shouldn't have to much difficulty. The trick lies in copying and pasting from the TinyPic upload box to where you would normally type. After that, go to the very far bottom right and click on advanced which will allow you to change the title..hit submit and viola, you're and insider.

    Debbie,

    Beautiful nudi shots! You're making me jealous... been far too long since I've been in the water to practice my underwater photography!

    Very nice work!

    Thanks Bill,

    How long since you have been in the water. How long have you been diving and what camera do you use underwater?

    Deb,

    I haven't been in the water since January when I was in some of the greatest water I've ever seen in Wakatobi, Indonesia. I've only been diving for a few years now, and I've only ever been to Cozumel (twice) and Wakatobi (once) and a local lake a couple times (but that doesn't really count).

    The two Cozumel trips, I rented different SeaLife cameras (DC600 and 800 I think). After the second Cozumel trip, I bought a SeaLife DC1200... and before I could even get it wet (aside from kayaking trips), I replaced it with an Ikelite housing for my Canon 7D. I still took the SeaLife and my wife used it for a couple dives, but they just don't compare!

    I really need to work on my buoyancy to help get my shots crisper and more keepers (or just fewer throw-aways) - but I really need more time in the water to do that. If you're interested, here is a link to my blog that has the search results to just show the posts from Wakatobi, or you can use the table of contents and just scroll through and pick individual posts to look at.

    - Bill

    Bill,

    You have some nice shot there. I love the one of the false clownfish. Beautiful shot.

    Deb,

    Thank you so much. That false clownfish shot is my absolute favorite photo I've ever taken. I distinctly remember the feeling of pressing the shutter at the exact right moment and knowing that it was a keeper! I have it printed as a 20x30 canvas wrapped print.

    Great to have some of your own work up in canvas on the wall. I want to do one for above my bed in canvas but still haven't picked which shot I want. It will come to me oneday and then I will get it done.
