Calling all underwater image makers!
 
Most of us are under some kind of restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak. To remind everyone of the beauty and majesty of the world's oceans and underwater places, please open up your image libraries and share your work.

Many resorts and dive operators are also facing very uncertain futures. May I ask that we tag our images with where they were taken and provide shout outs to relevant imaging related businesses?

Great idea!!!
Last trip was the expensiest dive of my live, only one dive, before the travel agancy called us back...
All the tourist based countries will have a big problem the next months...
A lot of dive shops will struggle and some will close,
so lets tell them they did a great job!
And hopefully will do it in future too!

Will ad some pics tomorrow from the compay pc.
Regards,
Wolfgang

Great idea

A few screen grabs from my Instagram. Local sites in Southern Qld Australia. There won’t be much diving in the next while so it’s important to contribute and keep each other inspired!

I quite liked my Netherlands freshwater version of the gobies in the bottle.

Unfortunately it is an invasive species. Neogobius melanostomus Round goby

I firmly believe that an image should "stand on its own feet" and engage the viewer regardless of how difficult it was to shoot, or how rare the subject is.
 
However, this shot of Richard Savenije taken during a fun dive after a Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) JJ-CCR Rebreathers course in very challenging conditions, shows how technology can help us document the things we see underwater.
 
It was shot with a very high resolution camera (Nikon D850) using a @Nauticam WACP and two SEACAM Seaflash 60 strobes. Camera settings were 1/160@f/6.3, ISO 800. Despite the large aperture, the WACP still provided decent corner performance...

My only thought is, posting this on wetpixel (forum or facebook) is like preaching to your own crowd. We should try sharing elsewhere as well.

While I am always inspired and fascinated by marine creatures, sometimes, the people are amazing too...

Agreed-the Wetpixel FB group has over 34000 members...

Almost as many as on here. The advantage of posting on here is that the images will be around forever (!). Social media posts tend to be very quickly looked at and not engaged with as thoroughly..

Our community is open to all to enjoy..!

Yeah, my wife and a couple of others in the group that I travel to Roatan with routinely carry magnifying glasses underwater.  I love that Arrow Blenny shot, but all of yours are really nice.
