Parapterois heterura

(Bleeker, 1856)

Elly Jeurissen Lionfish (Parapterois Heterura) @ Pemuteran, Bali, Indonesia Canon G12 in Canon WP-DC34 UW-housing; F2,8; 1/1250; ISO 80 Single strobe, Sea & Sea YS-01

Tom Hobock Super Nice Close Up Elly, Once again Perfect Photo great definition so close you can count the scales <3 this so much !! :)

Elly Jeurissen Thanks Tom ^_^

Stuart Pearce Stunning detail :)

John Paul Connor Beautiful

Joseph Azzopardi Great shot!!! well done!!

Claudia Weber-Gebert <3

Stephen Williams Elly as said before since you got your strobe ,your photos have gone up another level :-)

Elly Jeurissen Thanks a lot guys ^_^. Stephen, it is true that the strobe makes a huge difference. For a long time I refused to have an extra strobe, because I didn't want to lug around loads of equipments. But now I'm so thrilled to have one that I take that dragging for granted ;-)

Stuart Pearce Can get some really small lightweight strobes, one of mine is by Sunpak, it is small, adjustable and better than my large Sea&Sea for the close up shots :)

Elly Jeurissen Thanks for the hint Stuart. Certainly worth thinking off when I need a new strobe :-)
