Hi guys,

Wanted to share some images from North Carolina. Great diving, lucked out on the conditions. Very, very sharky & lots of gamefish, too.
Regards,
Michael

All the shots are very good but I particularly like the first sand tiger. Thanks for sharing as this is an area that doesn't get a lot of exposure here on wetpixel.

Fabulous stuff. The lighting is excellent and I like the subtle sense of movement in many of the images.

Were they shot with your D2X?

Hi Alex,

Yes, I used the D2x with both the 16mm and 10.5mm - the latter more often as I realized how close you can get to the sharks. Also quite a bit of slow shutter settings - perfect conditions for that over there. Thanks for the positive feedback.

Best regards,
Michael

Outstanding images! Definitely some of the best images I've seen from North Carolina.
