It is interesting to see a cleaner shrimp shot take first place in the action category of "Visions of Science 2005""

There's some really cool stuff in there as well.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

Jim Greenfield, who took the winning shot, has been taking underwater photos for a long time. He is an ardent UK diver too, and a conservationist. Congratulations are most certainly in order.

He's still a film man so I doubt that he'll see this but I'll email him with the link.

It is nice to see that not all winning shots were done with super-expensive apparatus such as an electron microscope (some were - see close up category - these are cool nevertheless!). :lol:

Thanks for your congratulations. Paul Kay tipped me off this had been mentioned otherwise I wouldn't have seen this thread. I also got a second in 2003 with a shot in the North Sea and in 2004 with one from Curacao.
Although still on film, I follow Wetpixel pretty closely as I am forever on the brink of making a switch to digital. Just need to steel myself for a major spend!

Tom: I would guess that the SEM in our lab (we bought it at auction for $7000 in 1994 and it is still running) costs less than all of our dive stuff if we add it together.

Canon 7d, Nauticam, Lots of glass, Olympus OMD-EM5, Nauticam, 60 macro, 45 macro, 8 mm fisheye, Inon, S&S, Athena Strobes plus lots of fiddly bits.
