All right, so they are laying on the reef.
All those who are crying about this should also get on your horse and whine about Doubilet's movement of nudies several years ago in the Geographic article.
Considering the contribution of all named in this thread, including Cousin Jones, I feel if they want to lay on the reef, then let them!
Let those without sin cast the first stone!

It's been ages since I've posted in Wetpixel (but I do regularly enjoy this forum for the awesome images that get posted), but the images I took yesterday have moved me to share them. I'm still getting to know my new Olympus E-PL5 having upgraded from the E-PL1 two months ago, and yesterday showed me just how good the dynamic range of this little marvel really is.
These are self portraits in my local river in Dartmoor national park, it's a wooded valley so you actually get more sun in the water during the winter while there are no leaves on the trees.
For light I used a single, YS-D1 with a custom snoot.

It depends on format as well.
My vote would be
DX => 60mm

One of my pictures was published on the Smithsonian Institution's website. The title of the article was
and the picture that they included was the one shown below.

I believe that you are judged by the final image and also how that image was taken in accordance with the rules of that competition. If it only judged by the final image the competition would be open to all sorts of unethical forms of trying to capture an images, like staged shots and harrassing wildlife to get that winning shot.
I personnaly think it takes more skill to fill 100% of a frame with a great shot, compared to using 50% of the frame of a ordinary shot to make a great shot.

My wife and I took a 14 night trip on the Seven Seas through Raja Ampat. It was our third trip to Raja Ampat, and the diving was excellent, as was the boat. The crew on the Seven Seas was uniformly good. The dive guides were helpful and knowledgeable, and the rest of the crew were also good at their jobs. There were 14 passengers on our trip, 12 divers, and surprisingly, 2 snorkelers (who also had a great time). The boat was comfortable and the food was very good. I would strongly recommend going on this boat. We did three or four dives per day, which is less than some liveaboards, but just right for me. Basically, the schedule alternated with eat, dive, eat, dive, eat, dive, etc., starting with a pre-breakfast between 6 and 7:30am and the first dive typically starting at 7:45am. One bit of interesting information that we learned is that this is the last season (for the time being) that the boat is going to cruise Raja Ampat. They feel, justifiably, that the region is getting crowded with liveaboards, so they are going to substitute a new dive region into their plans starting next year. Specifically, they will dive the South Komodo region, and they are confident it will be a great area to dive, with aspects similar to Raja Ampat diving. Should be interesting.
Here are some pics from the trip
