Swimming Rhinopias

 

Not the nicest shot, but probably one I won't have a chance to witness or shoot again any time soon.

This is my favorite pic from my trip to the Galapagos islands in Sept/05. It was my first experience with underwater photography using a borrowed Canon A40 (only 2.0 MP)and the corresponding Canon housing I stumbled onto in a dive shop. I found this string because I want to do some more wet shooting.

I got it, thanks-that's what I did the first time, I didn't realize the photo needed to be photoshoped down to size.

Thanks

This is my favorite this year (so far). From my first trip to Indonesia:

The limitation to 3-4 colors is what makes it most appealing to me.

Like the man said, lots of truly amazing pics in this thread!

 

As for me, no tropical trips this year - well no tropical diving trips, that is. So, I have to make do with what I get. Here's my favourite.

 

Kungshamn, Sweden. Nikon F70s, Sigma 15mm, Hugyfot housing, DS-125 and DS-50 on iTTL, 1/500s, f11

Mikes Jimenezs & Tonys Whales Photos is one off my favorites.

Intresting to see that most off the photographers have a creature portrait as favorite shot.

 

What I am missing is more creative WA angles photos. I have not grat WA untill now but maybe some have it.

It's very difficult for me personally to choose a favorite or 'best' shot (and there are some I don't want to release yet :huh: )...but I really enjoy the 'pop-art' look this one turned out with, even though the background is a little hot...

People (non-divers) seem surpised when I tell them it's from just off the California coast.

My favourite of the year.

 

It was the first time I had encountered "Hippocampus denise" . - thanks Max & Ricardo.

 

One of a series I put onto canvas this year - not the sharpest but it works very nicely as an art print.

 

I always find myself drawn back to the texture of the shot.

Great shots...guess I will be brave enough to post my first one...this was my favorite shot of the year...although maybe not the best. It was shot at Ship Rock off Catalina Island, California.

 

You can see it here:

Happy holidays all

This is mine, mainly because of the subject rather than the photo and also it is one of the few shots I have ever planned (i.e. gone into the water with a specific goal in mind and acheived waht was in my minds eye)

My favourite this year is this moustache dressed nudi from Marsa Alam.

 

The "personality" of the nudi is what drags me back to this picture over and over again.

I keep coming back to this one. I like the action and the fact that the spots is from a whale shark. And everytime I look on it I am thinking of the 51 other whale sharks we saw in only four days. It is by the way taken in Donsol in the Philippines. You are not allowed to scuba dive there, but only skin dive - and no flash - no touch and a distance of 3 meters (which nobody has told the whale sharks!)

All of them truly spectacular. The close up of that tiger shark gave me the willies just looking at it! I'm not sure how you get a shot like that....I'd be making a mess of the water :huh:

Likewise.

Worse, I've trying to delete the image of the great white shark on page 1 from my brain so that I can once again dive comfortably in Monterey California!

There's nothing like having something brush against your leg while doing a long surface swim in water where great whites have been spotted.
