  4. I think the image exif that LAUPS has is not the actual exif. I remember in the past this was the case but don't remember why it gets posted that way.

  6. Congratulations to you both. I wish you many happy and healthy years together. All my Best Todd
  7. Alex Mustard and I also were at Adams River and probably missed running into Stu and Jett by a few hours. Next time I can say it was not only one of my most exhausting shoots but also one on the most amazing things to witness. Great week of shooting. Cheers Todd
  8. But the Aquatica at $2500 is still less than the Nauticam which would support that there are still some manufacturing difficulties with this housing verse the D90 pricing. Both manufacturers being higher than the D90 housing. Cheers Todd
  9. That is awesome for Jim, and well deserved, but seeing him in a sport coat has me all out of sorts. Cheers Todd
  10. I would agree with the comments above. Although judging is very subjective I think the image lacks some of the starting points in terms of composition and appeal as has been mentioned. I also find the negative space not overly appealing. Not your fault in taking the image but, I would look for settings that may compliment the main subject matter. Getting closer and eye appeal are great comments to consider when you find the right setting. I always try and look for something that will add a second point of reference or appeal to the image if possible. Something to draw the viewers eye around the image. IMHO Great start keep posting images and keep it up! Cheers Todd
  11. Good luck with your presentation. Wish I was there to see it and have a few pints after. Todd
  12. Looks like a cool spot to dive and photograph. Cheers Todd
  13. Late to the game but I concur that the first one is the best and the adjustments look good. Good luck in the competition. Cheers Todd
  14. Alex Mustard and I just returned from Adams River. Amazing week and great fun and laughs as always to spend a week with my friend. A quick image from the first day we hit the water. Cheers Todd
  15. Daily Mail One of my shark images. Hopefully it helps further shark conservation and their importance to the oceans. Cheers Todd
  16. Congrats to the winners. A huge kudos to you. Todd
