You need to adjust the white balance ;)
Are you living in Panglao/Bohol ?
Why you post so little pictures ? you can post as wide as 1280pixels on the widest side

I live in Manila. Sorry for the small size I usually upload only the small size since it's just for the web.

Forgot to ask you. What would you suggest as far as white balance? I'm pretty new at this and I tend to do minimal processing on my pictures.

What software are you using when you post process ?

I use Lightroom, but there is plenty free nice softwares out there like lightzone (external link) or rawtherapee (external link)
Ususally i use the "eye dropper" and click on a sand with it, and automatically the real colors pop up ;)
When there is divers in the picture i click on the tank (it grey, so it's a bit more accurate)

Actually not the white balance you need to adjust. You need to buy strobes to light the object and bring the true color out. Otherwise, your object will be blueish/greyish.

I'm not into video, perhaps others can give better recommendations.

When I take video (rarely), I equipped my camera set with:
- 2 Ikelite DS-161 (strobes equipped for video also)
- 2 Sola 2000

Hope this helps.
