Damn Kevin - Great again. That one in the boat is particularly special - great idea
I love that you took a bunch of proper kit to the maldives with you.

and yes funny how you always seem to have these 'small world' moments when on holidays..

great shots Kevin, I admire your commitment to the 365 project too - and you've got loads of non posting to catch up on, so get sharing the pics, we never get bored! :D

Welcome back Kev, some great shots there of the Maldives. Condolences on the passing of your dad - your 365 shot was quite poignant.

Speaking of triggers and OCF, what recommendations can people give for some new triggers. The Cactus v4's I use work well, but cause horrific RF banding on the top ⅓ of the photograph when using my 5D and noise reduction doesn't work too well sometimes in removing it. The cactii triggers require manual flash setting, but I'm wondering if ETTL triggers will help save time with set up of the shot - anyone got experience with both?

I keep looking at this, and think there is something about it.

I think so as well.

I would crop a bit and increase the contrast to start. I like...

I would say manual triggering if you want control, lots of people get by with eTTL and are happy. The main advantage of the pocket wizard system for meis the ability to manauly adjust the power levels of speedlites.

I do not use my speedlights in a way that needs that and I have that control with my strobes.

consider changing the rf channel of your existing triggers or getting a set of the new ones. They are cheap and I hear good things about them.

Kevin keep posting. Great stuff.

They are all terrific shots but this is my favourite! The sky and the dramatics of it all is quite breathtaking.
She's lovely and knows how to work a camera. No model problems then ;)
Th bat photo is unbelievable - I didn't know they got that big (got a bat stuck in my hair as a kid - and a locust).

Thanks mate! I don't have any of your images on hand but have a couple of Rich's. Maybe if he doesn't mind I'll post a few of those (I don't know the protocol here....)

Thanks Matt! She's odd, she'll only pose for images on holiday. Here in London I get the old 'hand covering face' every time I point a camera at her.

Cheers Lee. I'm a bit upset about sort of missing a day. I took a few photos of the entire family out for dinner on the 16th, and then accidentally formatted that card and took photos over it. Fortunately everyone in my family took the same photo, so I'm going to steal one of theirs and claim it as my own and nobody will be the wiser.

Thanks Dennis. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to take a photo that day and was considering leaving it blank to mark the occasion but then we had a great sunset and I got a bit of inspiration.

I haven't used the ETTL triggers yet so I can't give much feedback on them. I find I've used the manual ones so often now that I usually only have to adjust them once or twice before they're set so I don't mind running back and forth that much.

I would say another advantage of those ettl speedlights is being able to shoot above your cameras max sync speed.

If you insist!

Here are a few more shots of the local wildlife. I wish I'd brought my macro lens, but then I had to keep telling myself it was supposed to be a honeymoon and not a photo trip.

Some of the dolphins we saw (which made me wish I'd brought my 70-200, but again, honeymoon)

This is Steve our Toilet Snake. All of the villas had 'outdoor' facilities and this snake had taken up residence in ours. Fortunately I was the one to discover him (and name him) or I think the entire island would have been woken up by Danni's screams. She's not too fond of snakes.

And some more people shots.

The staff of the island stopped everything every day at 15:00 to play some beach football. I had to stand on their pitch to take a few of the boat photos I posted earlier as it's just to the right of the goal here.

Thanks Cindy! I think these ones would likely knock you out if they flew into your hair (which could be a good thing I suppose, less emotional trauma!). The guys on the island referred to them as 'Flying Foxes' :)

I added your top pic as a favourite, not knowing you were on flickr.. I just randomly stumbled across it on flickr and now here! pretty freaky considering how many million images are on it.. Great pic by the way!
