Once again I marvel at all the talent and passion that the Wetpixel community shares.  I was able to get back in the water in 2013 after a year long hiatus and it was magical.  My favorite images came from a Wetpixel trip to Isla Mujeres where I got to share the ocean for the first time with both Adam and Eric.  This image is special to me in part because of all the help I got from them in making it.  Adam's assist on the camera settings and Eric with some help in post.  That support plus a little assist from Neptune and it's an image that will always be special to me.

The Ocean never ceases to amaze me and this year the big surprise came when I was reviewing the Isla images.  I was happy and amazed to see that Yoda put in an appearance to check us out.  I hope all of you have a wonderful 2014 with many many special moments.

 

May the force be with you.

Hi Steve,

 

Two great images, but the whale shark one is amazing! Nice work. Glad to hear you're back in the water!

My favorite image of 2013: a Decorated War Bonnet on red soft coral.  It was taken at my favorite dive site in the world:  Browning Pass, Port Hardy, British Columbia, Canada.

Wow, there are some amazing shots in this thread!

 

My shot of 2013 is a turtle on Shaab Maksour, in the south of Egypt. The turtle was eating soft coral, and I found a little sandy pit and just figured I'd lie down in it and see if the turtle wanted to come and say hi - it did! This was shot with a OM-D with the Panasonic 8mm fisheye lens. Distance to subject: <15 cm
