    Great conditions at the beginning of the day, no seas viz 65+, no current and 76/77 water temp
    winds picked up and viz dropped later in the day
    schooling fish, plenty of grouper, one lionfish, pod of 20 plus dolphins on the surface
    very friendly turtle
    tried for the first time the backscatter wide angle air lens
    coral restorations staghorn plantings are doing very well

    Very cool. Did you have a strobe? The way the turtle is lit, it doesn't look like purely natural light

    My set up is similar to yours.... what camera and strobe settings were you using for the wide shots

    My macro shots are starting to approach the quality of yours but my wide angle are way off the mark
