Agreed, some excellent pictures there Nick, especially the Harlequin Tuskfish, that's probably the best picture I've ever seen of that fish.

There's at least myself and Ash who are amateur/semi-professional photographers. So you're in good company.  :wink:

Thanks, you'll both definitely come in handy. :wink:
I've found it more of a challenge to get decent pics since changing to blue/white led's, when I had MH lighting the pictures looked a lot more natural and clearer.

I see what you mean. It's almost certainly down to the different white balance. You can either correct that or specify a different white balance in camera.

If your camera can give you RAW files, shoot raw and do your post processing in Lightroom. You'll be able to pull the colours all over the place and transform any image into a masterpiece.

If you don't have/are not familiar with Lightroom, if your camera can give you RAW files (as opposed to jpeg), then you could send one to me and I'll show a bit of what's possible by doing post processing.

After playing with the white balance settings for a bit I still wasn't really happy with the pics so I switched the blue leds off and took these. I think they look a little more natural..
