In the south of Gran Canaria are a few places with big scools of fishes. The white sand and blue water make it specially attractive. Picture taken with Sea&Sea DX8000G with self-constructed semi-fisheye, natural light, no Photoshop adjusts
Past weekend I dived first time with my D200, and the results really don't look bad. Here's one example
A little bit of photoshop. Normally I don't like to "play" with my images, but I think sometimes it's possible to obtain interesting results with it. Frame and illumination are original.
Yellow frog, Cebu, Phillipines. Sea&Sea DX8000G. No Photoshop adjusts, full frame.
Mandarin. Picture taken at Moalboal, Cebu, Phillipines. Camera: Sea&Sea DX8000G with Nikonos SB105 strobe
Sepia in it's ink.
Nightdive at Arinaga, Gran Canaria.
Ceriantharia by night. These beautyful animals are hidden under the sand during the day. Lanzarote, Canary Islands
"Speed". A canarian parrot-fish flying over the sea-grass. Gran Canaria.
A sepia had just got the dinner. Photo taken at Gran Canaria, during a night dive.
This parrot-fish is a symbol of the Canary Islands. The males are completely grey and the females have the colour shown here.

Wow, who needs photoshop with fish like these!?
Balssia gasti. This is a small shrimp living on gorgonia. Either it lives on a red or a yellow seafan, it gets the color of its "home". Its size is about 10 mm, less than a 1/2 inch.
Another view of the inside of the Kalais, laying in front of the harbour of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, in 30 m depth.

Nice wreck, foreground interesting - well done Arthur!
Octopus, waiting for "fast food" (but not too fast food) at the entrance of it's "home"
Diver, sun and not much more. Sometimes that's all one needs for a photo, don't you think so?
Zeus faber. This is one of the strangest fishes living in this area. It's normally in depths more than 40 meter, but at certain places here in Gran Canaria sometimes we can see it by night at only 15 meter or less.
Gorgonia. This big fan is one of many gorgonia and other corals at the reefs of Bunaken, North-Sulawesi.
Red sea-horse. This is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. This animal was living a few years at the same place, and we visited it almost every time we went there. The photo has the original frame, and has no photoshop adjusts.

Now here's a cutie even Dr Bob would be proud of
A wonderful sunset. I think it needs no more explanation...
Nemo and his family. Picture taken with Nikon F100 and Tamron 90 mm macro lens.
Gerardia savaglia. This is one of the most beautyful colonies of this species here at the Canary Islands. It is about 1,20 meter wide and you can see it visiting Gran Canaria and diving at a place named Playa de Cabron, in 30 meters depth.
The machine-room of the Kalais. This beautyful wreck laying in only 30 meters depth will disappear because it is inside the ampliation area of the exterior mole of the harbour at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. This picture was taken may 2004.
