Every time I see one, I can't help but to think of Willem DeFoe! The more I look at the face, the more I see him!! They couldn't have picked a better voiceover! Thanks again. T

Hi Ron, nice shots!

Photoshop's auto-level correction works wonders in wild SCUBA/snorkling shots. Figured I'd apply it to a couple of your photos for you. Enjoy!



This one I auto-leveled and got rid of a few blemishes in the shot. (bubbles n' such.)



Cya,
-Who Dah?

Ron, do you keep any in your 300? I heard they're tough to keep.

No... They are hard to keep...and I just can't bring myself to take them out of there natural home with a very high chance of them not making it in my system!!! So I just take pics of them and watch them when I dive!!!
