Temperate photos from Victoria, Australia

I dive in Victoria, Australia.
Victoria is a place that few divers ever add to their "must dive list."
In fact, I don't think any one ever has?
Its not that Victoria doesn't have great diving but rather that it has terrible PR.
Yet Victoria is home to unique and diverse marine life that inhabitat some spectacular ecosystems.
Here is a selection of images (my portfolio) that I feel best represents the marine life found in Victoria's cold water.
Hope you enjoyed the pics!
(apologies if you've seen them before, I also post on digidiver and diveoz)

Can I ask whether you have photoshop'd the blue eye in? I was trying to see a reflection of a diver.

DDT- it hasn't been photoshoped in and yes you can see my reflection which is pretty cool!

Canon 5D3 and 7D, Nauticam and Subal, an assortment of strobes and too many damn lenses!

I really appreciate it
AMW: It certainly does have eggs but its a weedy sea dragon, not a leafy. The weedy is not quite as..... spectacular but its still incredible to see.
Timing: acres of viz? Not in Victoria its normally around 5m but we do get periods where its 15m once in a while.
