In Topic: Hypselodoris from Bali?

Wouldn't mind a better look at the gills. Certainly Chromodorid, does look good for Hypselodoris to me. H.zephyra is closest match I've seen so far.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Polycerid ✔  Polycera sp.  Possibly a Kaloplocamus sp. ? Somewhere in that ball park.

I do understand that point. But to appear to accuse a photographer of fraud on a public forum without any proof? I completely disagree with the

approach of the OP.

 

I don't know Davide Lopresti and I don't follow the competition circuit, having only ever entered a handful over the years. I have no idea of the

submission opening and closing times of the competions in question. If the OP is solely pointing the finger at competition organisers not vetting

finalists as per their stated competition rules then there certainly is an issue with them and their application of rules agreed upon.

 

My issue with the OP is the annonomous mud slinging. If they are sure of something, they could provide proof and have the courage of his/her

convictions to do so in person. There is no clear proof other than inferrence that the entrant acted without conscience.  

 

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Lonelycat, I really do think that if you feel you need to point the finger or effectively name and shame someone you might do so openly rather than by an

annonomous post. This will indeed appear catty and will most likely find you out in the cold. It is quite possible that your accused submitted the image to

multiple comps at same time.

In Topic: Wide Angle Question Tokina 10-17 vs. 11-16mm?

13 April 2015 - 01:35 PM

The 10-17 with a Precision Dome would be a really great combo for an Ikelite housing. Very compact.

 

 

As for the 11-16 it's a rectilinear and will need to be used with a large dome 8" minimum, extension and probably a

+2 dioptre. Refer to Ikelite and your supplier on what their recommendations for the the lens in their housing is.

 

Cheers,

Jim.
