message Thanks Marylin for your nice comment. This one is really not easy to shoot but using Noodilab Moby 3.8 you can get such details!

message I'm to the point that if I get a new camera that can use that lens then I can't afford a trip, so I'll use what I have and be happy I can still go diving. Doug modified out treys with an aluminum piece he ground to put the TG-4 about 4-5 inches in front of the trey so the strobes could come back behind and level with the lens. I played for an hour on the floor with small 1/2 beads that look like a turtle and I could still get good focus and a black background on a white piece of rug. So I am hoping for a little improvement this year. We will see, going to Lembeh in May.
I really enjoy your photos you have become the best in Macro photography, we all strive to do as well. Thank you for being so generous to share your wonderful photos with all of us. Really hope to run into you at a resort some time, and share some time and dives with you. smile
