My WOW, too, guys! :)

Mark, I love the moray "looking up at" the shark - I expect to see that one published and/or as a contest winner somewhere! And Ludovic, I love both the sunball dolphins and the "kissing" dolphins. The latter will be a favorite everywhere you show it because it is so anthropomorphic (seems to capture a human emotion in the animals).

Fabulous work all of you! You seem to have had a lot of really talented photographers on this trip, James (yourself included, of course)! :)

Lots of great images, dolphins at night are amazing.
Yeah, that moray and shark shot is pretty cool! Sure it wasn't photoshopped. :)
I know just sour grapes that I did not get that shot.

Thanks for sharing and I know you have a lot mre great shots. I remember when I saw that shark/moray shot right after you downloaded and it looked just that good so I can confirm that very little if any was done to it. You posistioned yourself patiently there and waited for sharks to come by. The shark swimming through the school is also a great one. Next time I will take more time and be a little patient to set up shots like these. Your results are stunning. Your sense of humor, laugh and conversation really added to the trip. Hope to see you again on a trip. Keep me posted.


Best Fishes,
