yeah! there's me in the queue! Csaba Tokolyi (macro novice 1st and w/a novice HM)!!!
Congrats to all fellow wetpixel members! (Actually I'm here in read-only mode for some time now, but nowadays I started posting :) )

so let me introduce myself in a few words: I'm a graphic designer, I live in Hungary, Budapest. We have no sea here unfortunately but in half a days driving one can get to Croatia and there are nice waters there! I started uw photography "seriously" like a year ago when I bought an Ikelite housing for my D200.

AND THIS IS MY FIRST "BIG" PRIZE SO I'M LIKE IN THE SEVENTH HEAVENS, YEAH!!!

Pasquale,
It's good to have you here on Wetpixel. I certainly recognize you from the Scubadiving forum although I don't go over there much since they changed it around. Very nice work, congratulations

Hey Jose,
Give the rest of us a break, will ya. You're winning everything!

Just kidding. Beautiful images and well deserved wins. Actually, of all your shots, my favorite is the black and orange batfish.....gorgeous.

Thanks Larry !

I think i will take a sabbatic from job, because all those trips :rolleyes:

The black batfish is also my favorite ! It's was really difficult to photograh because it didn't stop moving, also i think it was the most gorgeous creature i ever found . Was like a butterfly in overdrive.
