trip because you are with these really BIG animals. I was pretty nervous and hope to get better images
this coming year. I'm about 8 trips behind in the sorts but an image of a lemon shark from the Bahamas
trip stands out. I've blown this one up and its tack sharp....also got to meet the Wetpixel triumvariate in
one place at the same time....

Took ages for this guy to get comfortable with me being so close at the surface.

I love macros and Christmas tree worms are some of my favourite subjects....
I love the colours, DOF and composition here and it even got published in a magazine!

I have many favorites this year. But some of the most awesome diving I've done this year was a few manta night dives in Kona, Hawaii over Thanksgiving.

This is my first post here, so: happy me! Spectacular thread this is, could not miss to contribute
I've started uw photography this year, and the portrait of this guy was taken on the second trip (to Krk, Croatia) with my D200 in it's Ikelite housing. Many firsts, this was also the first time a saw a yellow seahorse, so I was totally happy! Poseing like a real "badguy"...
The just before this dive I saw a D70 being flooded, well, not a happy sight...
So hi you all, here I am, hope to be posting now and then!!! And once again: wonderful pictures posted in this thread, real inspiration for the future, keep them coming, thx again!
...and merry christmas 4all!

Great pics, and it is nice to see so many shooters having fun in 2006.
Picking one is hard! So to throw everyone a curve my pick is a recent creation of my amigo, Lazaro Ruda in August in the Bahamas. But with a "twist" of course
Being a Mac guy I am still amazed at all you can do with lowly underated Apple programs, included on every Mac. This year I usualy never even left iPhoto for image manipulation be it "normal" or as you see represented here...
Looking forward to seeing what people produce in 2007!

This is one of my favourites of 2006: I took in January & it's the Ghiannis D on Abu Nahas reef in the northern Red Sea. I was torn between trying to photograph the dolphin and just enjoying the interaction; she certainly wanted to play with me!
A memorable dive.
