Some more amateur shots... (naging shutter addict e.. ;D ;D)

Shell souvenirs..


That's Male on the right and the airport on the left..


Some shots of some atolls while on-board a plane.. malas lang the right engine was right next to my window.. kaya kokonti lang nakuhanan ko. ;)


Here's another..

And, finally.. reaching the reason what am I here for.. :'(

The Meradhoo Island, once an uninhabited island.


That's what I'm talking about! At depth of about 1.5meters, corals and schools of reef fish, flying fish and whatever fish lah, crystal clear!


One more..


My first sunrise in the island.. fascinating!


..and my first sunset.  ;D


To the gurus, I would highly appreciate comments about these shots. Btw, want some more? ;D ;D ;D

thanks guys!

wow pare youre in paradise!!  :)
buti hindi ka nasita ng flight attendant when you took pics of the island hehehe

i sat on seat 1A.. right in front of the flight stewardess. konting smile..and smile some more..hahaha.. okay na. ang nakakatawa nga, before nya sinara yung door, when everyone's on board already, i took out a piece of tissue paper, reached for my window and cleaned it kasi may smudges. hahaha..  ;D ;D ;D

actually, while on-board, after reaching the altitude of 20,000ft, i took off my seat belt and roam around the plane to take better shots.. and of course, smile pa rin sa stewardess.. hahahaha  ;D ;D ;D

here are my favorite spots in the island..




went snorkelling, whoa! the corals and those reef fish! so fascinating! meron ba nabibiling water-resistant casing and dslr's? for me to share a piece of what i saw, i took off one out of the water instead for a few seconds, then put it back (i know its prohibited.. and im guilty!hahaha)

teka, pwede ko kaya iuwi to?  ;D


thanks anaklupa, i know what you mean.. di na ako makakabili ng filters. sayang, i just needed 15 minutes to buy the central polarizing filter back in singapore. kaso the shop was opposite from changi airport. e boarding time na. else, baka mapag-iwanan ako. yun pala ang kelangan to get bluer skies, reflection reduction and crispier underwater details without going underwater. sayang. i should have bought the 2nd hand 400mm sigma telephoto lens also, the non-apo type para mura, manual focus. so i can shoot a lot more like the kingfishers and the flying fish at work.  :'(

anyway, i'll just try to look around if i got a chance to go to male, i'll get those things (sana meron.. ;D). this island right here is nothing compared to the crescent-shaped vagaru island, the next island resort we're going to develop, perhaps this summer or earlier. ;D ;D ;D

Pre, get a polarizing filter.  Perfect for the beach.  You'll get clearer waters and bluer skies.


dude polarizing filter is the way to go.  and yes there are underwater casings to be bought for your camera!  shoot away!
