    Chard, what is your strobe? I will add it to the lookup table

    From the looks on my lappie.. and through my tired eyes after ADEX… it looks more like the image rather than the nudi having the bluish blotch. Seems more like a cast blue shadow..instead.

    It is difficult to get a good composition on this, you have to be patient to wait for a good pose on this. As about the blue blotch I tend to agree with Ivan …

    BTW, I imagine if Pulau Seribu has better visibility with so many uncommon critters like this one, it would be a great dive destination there

    Yeap, It looks like shadow.. but, how could it be blue greenish shadow, not the black shadow???

  6. Ivan Choong says:

    The strobe could had something between the subject and the strobe itself. Causing it to transfer any color as a shadow.

    I got blue shadows (on white surface) on my shots too, so its just the camera’s color processing or something…
