A banded Butterfly fish stopped swimming to check out my port...I think she saw her reflection in there.

Juvenile trunkfish. Cute black and yellow marbles almost impossible to get in focus...at least for me.
This shot looks like a satellite orbiting a planet to me. Which is why I left the backscatter in, since it contributed to the feeling.

Christmas Tree Worms are my favorite subject. You have to be very stealthy to get in close to them. This is not cropped with only backscatter removed.

This Christmas Tree Worm was a rather ugly brownish color when I first spotted it. But, when lit it because this beautiful red/white color and was breathtaking. This is without a dopter.

This honeycomb cowfish posed for me for quite a while...and followed me around, even when I wasn't shooting him. I was set up for macro, so I did the best I could with getting a portrait.

I spent a lot of time the water this last trip, and this is a shot that I have had on my mind for about 2 years. I am proud to say I got it.No diopter, this is with the 60mm macro lens that Olympus makes.

I saw this shrimp and decided to try and shoot it, even though I had a gorgonian blowing in my face between my eyes and the LCD screen. It was fun working slowly and through the surge t get this image.
