In Topic: Your Favourite/Best Image of 2014

Thanks for the pics everyone

 

Though far from my normal NC haunts, this is my favorite.

 

At San Benedicto Island in the Revillagigedos Archipelago. At approximately 6:30 in the morning, first panga on site at "The Boiler", with only me, the dive master and another diver on board - the remainder of our team decided to sleep in.  I watched as this group of 6 dolphins came together from their separate activities, gathered in the distance, and seemingly make a conscious decision to come see just what the heck I was. They approached, swimming tantalizingly slow, straight towards me. Heart pounding, I kept praying, "Please keep coming! Closer! Stay together! Closer! Keep coming!" I literally had to "bow up" to get out of their way, as they passed as it seemed they were going to swim right through my chest. I likely could have wrapped my arms around several of them. Made the trip.

I think that the D7100 is the best all-round underwater camera on the market. Alex

HI Alex or anyone

 

was wondering if the Nikon 10.5mm FE image quality holds up going from 12MP (my d300) to the 24MP of the d7100?

 

thx in advance

do your research to best increase your odds, but the best thing you can realize about all these extremely beautiful places is that none of them are zoos and enjoy the experience. 

 

very hard for us photographers to do when hunting the iconic trophy shot and mother nature is not cooperating! ;-)
