To capture a shoal of coral fishes together with diver is one of the most difficult jobs for underwater photographers.

    Not only did you capture a shot with both coral fish and diver, but I think you gave instructions to the fish as to where to place themselves in relation to one another, and right over THAT very part of the reef, and right when the diver was in THE right spot to complete the composition :)))) Magic work, Norbert. Always enjoy viewing your uploads.

  • Thank you Carol. I wish, it would go like that. No, not really. I like to play that game with fishes, and I will get them all :-)

    Top quality work as usual Norbert! I see you switched to the 5D MKII. Are you happy with how it performs underwater? I just the housing for mine a few weeks ago and believe it or not, I didn’t have a chance to put it under pressure yet!

  • Thank you. I use the 5D MK II since 2009 January. A fine camera that includes video function!
