I'm not sure what this is about but you must admire Manfred's technique. This could be an album cover (sorry CD) perhaps?

Some kind of grouper, I think. Taken on an Olympus C 770 in an Olympus housing with a Sunpak strobe. The 'levels' were adjusted in Photoshop so the red glows a bit.
Taken at 25 metres on the wreck just off the house reef in Bandos.

This picture of some Trevally wasn't as good as I hoped but I liked the composition. A bit of reframing and the application of a PSP7 filter brought it to this, which I think is an improvement.

Having been bitten by one of these whilst snorkling I thought I'd get my own back by forcing one to be a model! Found this one in a gap in the coral and kept it there by repeatedly flashing my strobe at it!
