That is a stunning composit of the sub. I would be interested in using it, and others for a short piece in the Underwater Journal (www.underwaterjournal.com).

Might as well add one of mine taken Dec 18, 2006 off Jupiter, Florida.

my one is not really a one shot picture... but it's one picture B)

That has got to be the most amazing pano I have ever seen. They are hard enough to do well on land with a tripod. I can only imagine how hard it was to do underwater!

Great thread, amazing pics, especially the dolphin/wreck shot, the nemo FE magical reefscape, the swimmer action portrait, the badass seahorse, the motion blur shark, the sub pano and the leopard seal dragging the penguin down. those blew me away.

here's one of my faves i froze my butt off recently to get. (its 65 now, from 85 in the summer, time to break out teh drysuit... im serious, brrrrr) Not bad with only 5 months shooting digital UW.

Biggest nudibranch/sea goddess i've ever seen, 4 inches!! it was stuck on this little tuft of green stuff (plant? sponge?) trying to reach over to this other sponge just on the edge of the frame. got lucky, shot over 30 frames and only got 1 like this.

Taken in the most eastern part of Estonia, near island Saaremaa. Actually we went to take photos of seals, but the cubs were too big already and little afraid of the divers. Well, to be honest, also too fast for me :P But it was fun to play hide and seek with them behind stones and rock formations. The picture was taken, when I was laying low behind a big stone and waiting for a the curious cubs to show up. Just tried different settings with natural light.
The emotion of seeing some 50 seals in one colony made this shot so special, compared to other photos from diving trips and work in the Red Sea area.

This is my favourite from November 2006, Manta reef off the Inhambane Provinse in Mozambique.
