Critidoc, what is this about? And how can you still claim the photo is yours? Jim has proved the photo is his (I've seen the original), there is no question about it.

Jim, you can be sure that the photo will be removed from the contest and appropriate action will be taken.


just got on home computer, file was 20060516_jewelled damselfish located in my little cayman folder under 20060516 (the date).
checking exif data, d200, 60 mm lens, iso 100, f 18 exif date reads 2006-05-19
all the rest of my exif data on my other photos for that day reads 2006-05-16
I would appear that this is not mine, do not know how it got there. I have asked wetpixel to remove it and would like to do same for underwaterphoto.com. I have deleted the photo from my files
my appologies, I hope are enough. i have learned to double check exif data before I postanything..

Howdy, Folks. I don't get to spend too much time on Wetpixel, but I have to warn you about a thief among us. I enter photos on underwaterphotography.com, and I know some of you do too. Yesterday, I noticed one of my photos that I had posted on Digital Diver Network a few months ago showed up on underwaterphotography.com under the name of "Peter Allinson." Mr. Allinson (if that's his real name) is a thief. I notified the UWP moderator about this and asked him to kill the photo and dump this guy (or gal). I haven't heard back from him yet, but others have also emailed him about this.

A few minutes ago, I noticed that someone has posted the same photo in the current Wetpixel photo contest. Presumably, it's the same thief. I will email the moderators about this, but if they see this tonight, please kill this entry and inform me who entered it.

Here's the link to DDN where I showed both photos and explained the situation if you're interested:

By the way, I have the original uncropped unedited file of the photo, and I assure you the thief does not. I also have the whole series of photos that I took of the little juvenile damselfish, and the thief does not.

I just sent this to Eric. I was in Little cayman diving and shooting with my new D200, 5/11-17/2006. The POTW entry "spots" has been claimed to belong to another member jimbo1946. while I have the edited tiff file, confirming it was shot with a d200 and during the time I was in Little Cayman, sandwiched in the little Cayman file between other keepers from that same day (I do not retain my origional nef files ( not enough storage room), I only retain the keeper Tiffs and jpeg copies for emailing .
I prefer not to get into a pissing match over the photo, please remove it. T
he photo that jimbo1946 posted in underwaterphoto.com was in July and is a totally different picture. He posted a horizontal flip of "spots" today on underwaterphoto.com. I have not been able to find his version of spots on digitaldiver.net as he claimed. sorry for any inconvience this may cause.

My mating great white shark image keeps getting disqualified in competitions. :blink:

Not the best cloning job on the second shark. Probably disqualified as a doctored photo.

What kind of battery do you have in your housing critidoc? Is it a CR2032 cell? Mine is equiped with a 12 V 23a alkaline battery with a capacity of appr. 50 mAh. The converter consumes about 7 mA when the strobe is switched on. So, 50/7= 7 hours... Not too long i would say. BTW, nothing is said about the number of shots in the HW iTTL converter manual.
Batteries are only 2 euros: compared to rest of our cheap hobby it's not that much IMHO...

cheers, Udo

I believe it is a lithium, need to check when i get home. Looks like the cr2032, flat disc. 7 hours use is a long time. each flash is a very short duration
