Posted 20 December 2007 - 03:36 AM
In 2007 I upgraded my Oly 5050z into a Nikon D80.
so here is my most favourite photo of 2007 with the 5050:
shot with a single DS125 strobe and an Ikelite case.
here is my favourite 2007 sphoto with the D80:
dual DS125 strobes and Sigma 50mm Macro lens.
2 Ikelite DS125 Strobes
Sigma 50mm 2.8 Macro
Nikon 105mm VR

A shot that is not near to perfect, but always makes me smile (because of the way you look through the eyes. These labrids were just annoying because they would move too fast to take a decent shot....
and I'm gonna cheat as well, I think this could be my best (altough another one of the same subject people liked more at flickr). I like the alternating of sharp and unsharp. maybe some more backscatter cloning.....:
(maybe best viewed full size
(forgot to mention: both using 20D in ikelite, 60mm macro, dual DS-50 strobes)

The other reason it's my favorite is it convinced me it was time to put the film away and go digital. Color is off, partly due to scanner issues. Still need to play in CS3 with it. Not a great image but it was fun!

I took this on the Wetpixel shark & dolphin Shearwater trip in the Bahamas. For dolphins, we just used snorkel gear and had to swim as fast as we could to try to keep up with the small dolphin pods we encountered (I've described them as small "traveling circuses" because they kept just moving whether we were there or not).
I think I was the most out-of-shape person in the group, so when we did get a few minutes with a pod, I was generally at the (rear) fringe of the group , whereas the more athletic members (e.g., Eric) were in the middle of the pod! <_< But I did get a few shots I liked, and this one ended up as my favorite:
