    WOW! IMarine! Now that's some stunning photography! Do you use a camera macro stand (not sure of correct name for this) as well? Or was the camera hand held? And also - what was your shutter speed/aperture settings?

    You mean a tripod? No all these shots were hand held. Photos were all F11 @ 1/80 seconds, ISO 400, 65mm focal length.

    AFAIK yes. They eat detritus. From what I have heard is some species get large and then they might become an issue with regards to your corals.

    Angelboy - yes, bristleworms are good, they form an important part of the clean up crew.

    Likefish, stunning makro photography, thanks.

    Thanks LikesFish - No - I am not talking about a tri-pod. There's a stand where the camera is attached to (I think usually by it's lense), where the camera's distance to the subject could minutely modified, as such getting the perfect macro photo. I am just not sure anymore what it is called. I will have a look in my old photography books.......... BUT, I must say - you pics are ABSOLUTELY fabulous!
    F11! WOW! Awesome camera you have that's able to open the aperture to F11!

    Most other camera's and lenses have a maximum aperture opening of F8 or F8.5

    You are talking about a focussing rail. Yes I have one but no I had to keep the camera vertical to take the photos (all through water). So it had to be hand held.

    PS: The aperture can go to F16 on that lens, and F22 on the 100mm macro lens, but I rarely shoot at those apertures due to diffraction limits.

    Yeah that would be nice, but then again the lens I used above is not an L lens - heck, it can't even focus automatically.
