    nice one dude. what equipment you using?

    some advice (and its got nothing to do with your skills) is to try get some more blue light into your pics so it doesnt look to white. but that is my personal preference

    Very Good Pics. But try and get the "whole " fish in the pics. Also, I see you have some "noise" on the photos. Normally when you see this is when your ISO is set too high

    How does one see "noise" ? or what is it? this confuses me. is noise not sound? How does one see noise in a pic if one cant listen to it.

    Is the noise in the pic the amount of action wave crashing, bubbles popping, one envisages?

    Jokes aside Sean. Please explain/elaborate on noise. TNX :thumbup:

    Holy smoke Clinton. We're not worthy oh revered one! I'm looking at there pics on my phone, so i'm seeing tons of noise lol. What Sean would be refering to, is the grainyness and detail loss that you see in especially lighter tones and outlines as the camera looses resolution in the higher iso numbers. Over sharpening can accentuate this problem. Wow dude. . . We must get together and compare notes.

    thank you:)

    thanks very much;)

    lol! thanks Broder;) i understand the "noise" we talking about now.what do you suggest, using a lower ISO setting? i find that it makes my picks a little darker.
    we must get together sometime,i love your photography, and i still need to see that amazing tank of yours with my own eyes:)

    thanks Sean.

    shot bru!

    maybe Sean is still playing in his sand pit with his monster rocks he is making:p
