What does anyone think about this Dugong pic. I honestly think its the best pic i have ever taken in my 3 uw photography trips.

Also, how much of a difference would it make to have a digital SLR in a housing such as the D70 as opposed to my current Ricoh Caplio RR30.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I think it's a great pic! With a DSLR, you'd have a 6 megapixel file, and the blue would probably look a lot less noisey.

Excellent pic. I'd be very pleased with myself!

I think it's a good pic, very sharp image and correct lightning, diagonal makes a nice composition. And dugong loosk so tender!

You should feel very proud of it! Thnks for sharing :blink:

Lighting and behaviour are very nice.
But with such an unusual animal I'd like to see more of it. That for me is where the story of the image should be.
