Great thread, amazing pics, especially the dolphin/wreck shot, the nemo FE magical reefscape, the swimmer action portrait, the badass seahorse, the motion blur shark, the sub pano and the leopard seal dragging the penguin down. those blew me away.
here's one of my faves i froze my butt off recently to get. (its 65 now, from 85 in the summer, time to break out teh drysuit... im serious, brrrrr) Not bad with only 5 months shooting digital UW.
Biggest nudibranch/sea goddess i've ever seen, 4 inches!! it was stuck on this little tuft of green stuff (plant? sponge?) trying to reach over to this other sponge just on the edge of the frame. got lucky, shot over 30 frames and only got 1 like this.
a good one
Ok, far away from your shots, but this is my favorite of 2006 because i took it on the first divetrip i ever did with a UW camera...
Looks like its being shaped from the darkness...
Well in my gloomy, sinister mind anyway...
I have many favourite pics... but this by far was the most exciting to shoot!
another WOW for the sub.... damn that is a fine piece of work!!
glad I didn't have to post AFTER it!
Taken in the most eastern part of Estonia, near island Saaremaa. Actually we went to take photos of seals, but the cubs were too big already and little afraid of the divers. Well, to be honest, also too fast for me But it was fun to play hide and seek with them behind stones and rock formations. The picture was taken, when I was laying low behind a big stone and waiting for a the curious cubs to show up. Just tried different settings with natural light.
The emotion of seeing some 50 seals in one colony made this shot so special, compared to other photos from diving trips and work in the Red Sea area.
This is my favourite from November 2006, Manta reef off the Inhambane Provinse in Mozambique.
