Sorry, screwed that first post up. I thought some of you UK wetpixellers might be interested in going to this event. A fellow diver and I have provisionally booked a boat with the intention of offering this as a trip for our club but we have had a cool response to the idea so I thought I would open it up to you guys to see if there is any interest in going to this weekend, There are 4 spaces left on the boat.
here are more details of the competition;
and some info on the boat

The built-in hood could be a problem for those of us with smaller domes and could cause unwanted reflections from inside larger domes.
It also looks like a "Phat" lens, remember the problems with the Nikon 105 VR and port diameters!

I love the shots and great use of natural light, I dont think you need to have the diver any larger in the frame, it allows the viewer a referance point to then marvel at the scenery and/or other parts of the picture (sub/wreck ect).
The first thing I noticed was that all your shots seem to have the sub moving away from the camera and into the background, I believe that there is more interest from the picture viewers point when a main object in a shot is coming toward them, even the wreckage of the plane in the magazine example, we know that it's not going anywhere but the photographer has taken the shot so that the plane is pointed toward the veiwer.
I realise that there may be a lot of persuading to be done with the submarines owners but for saftey's sake you may have to talk them into bringing the sub to a complete stop in order to get this shot. I'm sure that you will eventually get the knockout picture that all the magazines will be after.

Don't forget the Tokina 10-17, its a more compact lens than the 12-24 and I believe closer focusing, also its a big hit with all the guys that use it here at wetpixel.
