    as my photos were ripped off from this site by someone on the internet, I deleted them. Sorry. Maybe I have to post smaller ones or with a HUGE Watermark, which is not as nice to view then.

    Very nice! I am happy with my wet lens/RX100 housing setup but sometimes wonder how much fun my e-m1 and panasonic 7-14 would be. Don't dive quite often enough to justify the cost of the upgrade to myself though...maybe once I feel a bit more confident with the cam underwater :)

    Dennis,

    Really nice! The Porcelain Crab really pops and the Eel's expression is fantastic. Great photos...

    great photos, always nice to see others. Were they processed in LR? If so are you willing to share the preset processing file? Thank you

    Thanks. They were processed in Lightroom and Photoshop. I don't have a specific preset. I usually increase clarity and vibrance by 15 to 25 points, and I increase contrast a bit. I usually also adjust whites and blacks to maximize contrast.

    Here's some from today's dive. All from Boracay, Philippines
    I did a huge blunder while packing - for some reason the flash for my OM-D E-M5 stayed home, so I couldn't use my strobe :-(

    Bought myself a cheap video light (Fantasea radiance 1600), but my options for aperture and shutter is of course a bit limited with this setup.

    Some fiddling with the controls on my iPad before uploading, and taken with Olympus 60mm macro lens.

    Anyways - here goes

    Adult male ribbon eel

    A shrimp - don't know the species name off hand

    Really nice pictures, and nice recovery with the videolight... you must have been devastated when realizing the flash unit was not in your bag.

    I shot with the E-PL5 underwater and I just know this is a mistake waiting to happen for as well...
