You've captured the magic of diving in New Zealand and shown us rarely seen angles of the Poor Knights Islands and our diving playground. Can't wait to see more video and aerial antics from you Colin. And here's to more New Zealand material on Wetpixel! Just gorgeous!!
An update on my dome port ring reflection issue... I managed to get my hands on some black Gorilla grip tape. I cut 1.5 inch strips and overlapped them neatly around the inside of my dome port, covering the ring tracks. Last week I went out photographing sea lions and whale sharks in silty water with a tonne of sunshine beaming down. In almost all of my images I can't see any problems with the ring reflections. There is the odd photo where I can see small signs of a reflection aberration, but for the most part it was okay. Although this wasn't a scientific study, I feel pretty certain that pre-taping I would have had a huge issue with ring reflections shooting in these conditions, angled towards the sun. So I feel the taping has made a big improvement. :-)
