HA! Superb. I don't know whether I feel sorrier for the sergeant major or the nudi.

That's so cool! Well, I'm always sorry for the loss of life, and I guess you can't use the disclaimer that "no animals were harmed in the making of this film." And that nudie just got no respect!

Great shot, Wagsy!

Great shot!

Also an excellent job of smooth zoom at the head to set the shot up!

It was a Estuary Cod that had been following us around every time we night dived there. It liked the lights or something...maybe Kelly :D .

It was gone in like 3 frames on the timeline so how quick is that?

How the heck did a great clip like that get lost in a bunch of files? Truely an excellent sequence and 3 seperate sizes of subjects to juxtaposition themselves against. If thats not a keeper, I don't know what is.

And I would have thought it's very marketable for a TV ad or something. Not sure what the ad would be for though. Any ideas?
