These are my first attempts using my new DIC setup. I'm having some trouble getting exposures correct, but I guess things will improve as I get more experience - I'm using a slightly different illumination and flash sytem to before, all via a 'Y' fibre optic. Also, although I like blue backgrounds, the camera doesn't seem so happy with this, so maybe I'll have more luck without the retardation filter.

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.

Some very good images there Graham. :D DIC seems to be the thing now a days. I don't know about that deep blue background either. I think the white balance may need to be reset to give a more natural look to the images but they are good just the same swimming in the blue. :D
