Here's a couple from me. Taken with a crappy, disposable underwater camera, at
the Mayan Riviera.

Oh, I have to play in this category!

....and I'm reminded that I'm now less than 1 year from my trip to the Galapagos... More fun, I need to start shopping for some wet photo equipment.

Lemon Shark off Bora Bora. When you light them up, they really are kind of yellow. This one was over 10 feet long and potentially nasty. One of the few times when I've felt a bit uncomfortable... See the little pilot fish in the 2nd photo?

Manta Ray. Hard to get a good shot because they love the plankton rich (murky) water.

Impossible to choose, but I'll call this one my official entry. I just like this shot for no particular reason.

I want to play too but sadly this is my only decent dive picture. I took it while diving the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria last year with my Canon Powershot. Its a Puget Sound King Crab.

Scott that shrimp shot is incredible...but that brain is enormous! They call that a showpiece coral but you need a fairly sizable tank for it.

Wow too many to choose from. So here are a few. All taken with a nikon D70s in a Fantasea housing and a Nikonos strobe. Most from Utila/Roatan or Mexico.

Thanks o.c.d. The Stobe helps bring the colours out a lot. I couldn't choose between them all, maybe I should switch my entry!

Thanks Brett. Guess your going to need to get a bigger tank so you can get one :biggrin:

Just got back from Indonesia yesterday and have 3 favorites so far. It's from the Lembeh straight and Bunaken island off North Sulawesi. Pics taken with Panasonic DMC-TS1 with underwater housing. No editing on any pic.

Here's some pics from my dip in Maui. Not sure which pic to pick but I'll go with the first one I guess.Someone can correct me if they think other wise :) If I had time I'd dig out some other diving pictures but I'm squeezing these in at the last minute as I've been off line for awhile. The camera is a Nikon D-80.
