I've been diving the pinnacles around San Miguel Island (near Santa Barbara, Southern California) for years, trying to get a wide angle scenic that does the area justice. Conditions were great this day, and we hit a new spot (near Wilson's rock) that had a lot of hydrocoral. This image finally captures the life and color that shows why it's my favorite local destination.

I had an "interesting" 2006, to say the least, resulting in only one dive trip for 2006.

This was my first trip with the D2Xs. I had a shot in mind and spent a couple of days working on getting it. Seen the behavior many times, but this was my first successful attempt at recording it.

Had a fantastic year with many highlights, learnt a lot, and this pic rates as my favourite for 2006.



Can't seem to get the image to appear, what am I doing wrong :{ ?

Taken at the end of 2006 under challenging conditions: low grey clouds, rain and in a British quarry with 20m+ walls. I've used all of the knowledge that I gained during the year to make an ambient light shot at high ASA equivalent with a Greenwater Magic filter, processed with NoiseNinja on my lovely MacPro (Windows no more!). I enjoyed this more than any one shot from Bikini or the Red Sea (sad...).

Straight from the camera, no cropping, just reduced resolution to 1200 pixels wide. I love this shot for its looks and also because it is such an improvement over the shots I was taking when I took my camera down for the first time only 7 days before. dSLR + laptop is one hell of a rewarding learning experience.

Well, as someone who's only been on a few dives, and only with DISPOSABLE cameras, I can't hold a torch to anyone else here, but here's one of my favorites from Fiji...

Also, I love that this place has a Guinness emoticon. :rolleyes:

le Rubis : It's one of the famoust french sub from the second world war as it destroyed a significant number of german boats ! It's now one of the nicest wreck in the Mediterranean Sea...

Just the coolest shot I've seen in a long time! Now all you need is a pod of dolphin in front of it (collaborate w/ralphy..... :D )

There was some... but I had to explain them that I don't want anybody on that picture ! :glare: :D
