    Nice one, pak Zaki…
    The color still blue, though not silver yet.
    Did you use zoom to took this picture?

  2. Erwin Kodiat says:

    Wow, amazingly close! Did you use zoom to get this picture (repeating Hengky’s question)?

  3. Ahmad Zaki says:

    Ha ha tidak ada zoom lens. Unfortunately I only had my 60mm macro lens (90mm equiv with Nikon DX format) f6.3, 1/160, no flash - so, blue color from water. Very slight cropping. Lucky the barracuda comes very close in Sipadan.

  4. Tom F. Chandra says:

    So that’s why the picture is blueish. Can it be fixed with white balance?

  5. Ahmad Zaki says:

    Have not tried, maybe possible with Photoshop. But I was not thinking on the camera - with barracudas swirling around the last thing on my mind was to adjust white balance… ambil gambar dulu, adjust kemudian!

    Setuju deh, lagi ada schooling baracuda kayak gini mana sempet mikir dulu… Shoot first, think later ya…:)
