Hi All,

I noticed that the fine people at ScubaDiving.com have published the winners gallery for Cayman Digital Madness, which makes it much easier to link to the pics that did us proud.

First up, my girlfriend Alex's shots. She shoots a Sony P150 point and shoot in a Sony housing with an Inon D-2000 strobe and a Sea&Sea WA wet lens.

We had an amazing time all week, with great diving and invaluable input from Alex Mustard and Stephen Frink. Looks like we might "have to" go back twice next year, once to take up our Nekton Liveaboard prize and then for CDM 2007

Enjoy,

Martyn

A big thanks to Alex, for all his help and wealth of information. He was very dedicated to making sure we all had the most information possible for the sites, and was always available to look at photos, give advice, and answer question day and (almost all) night.

Hey guys,

Sorry for my late contribution to this thread - just home from a week of internet silence in Sardinia (where I went to straight from Cayman). It is fantastic to see the shots above.

I also very much enjoyed the week with you all - even if it was a bit tiring at times. Jonathan, you should also post your self portrait at Stingray City - that is cool.

Here's a self-portrait I took at Stingray City. It was in my portfolio of 6 pictures which won 2nd place in the Cayman Digital Madness. Glad you like it Alex!
