Artsy Fartsy shots....

these are some pictures where I over process them in lightroom and get creative with my pictures.

this shot was taken deeeeeeep. I was on a wreck (ande) in 200 feet of water off palm beach and I was looking for bull shark shots but no sharks were to be seen this da. at one point I looked up and saw a diver hangin onto the top of the wreck and thought it would make a cool shot. so this is what I snapped


here is a manta ray I found off palm beach one day while pleasure diving on my own. me and another photographer were looking for a supposed giant (12' goliath) on a barge wreck inshore when this manta came swimming up. we spent about 35 mins diving with him. was a very cool experience. the water clarity that day was garbage so I had to do with what I had




this turtle shot I got on juno ledge. I was down o the bottom and saw the turtle cruising the top and snapped this picture as it passed by me.


these 2 sailboat shots were taken in the Bahamas. I took them to be creative in lightroom and this is what I came up with.

    I like them all except the 2nd sailboat image....
    just a tad too artsy-fartsy for me, but it would make a nice post card...
    the manta shots are awesome, #2 manta is really outstanding...
    I have really enjoyed your diving images, keep putting them up....

    Thanks Tim I appreciate the kind words. Thats what I was hoping I would get was feedback. That manta picture is unique because I got a good snap of the manta with my diver partner. And he got a picture with the manta and me photographing it. We both have done art shows and people always like the manta pictures. But then their mind gets blown when we show them the other picture opposite of the one they are looking at.

    Jason,
    mantas are so graceful in the water. when I used to dive, I'd come upon them from time to time and it was so beautiful and graceful to watch them. when I'm fishing the grass flats down at chandeluer I will see them and hear them jump, sometimes as close as 100'+.
    if you have your backed turned and they get that close and jump, it'll scare the hell out of you...

    Injuries are a part of the method, however, if you have a seem at these convenient house education suggestions, you ought to get the present day member of your private family at the proper track in some weeks’ time.
