i would be a shame to lose all those pics kurt, i was hoping just to add to the growing club album.
if people want to cheat that is their prerogative, however, just like in spearing comps you will eventually be found out, and when that day comes you will have to carry that reputation and shame.
Besides, its all about having the right settings to take the right shot rather than having the bottom time from what I've heard.
I just need a bloody Ikelite housing for my G9 and I'll be ready to go
i dont entirely agree with that. certainly the right settings help, however, if your not in the right place
at the right time
to take a shot it will be hard to cover certain species. bottom time helps eliminate many variables, and allows you to play the numbers game with flighty fish, in a sense photographers are still hunting, reading behavior and terrain to zero in on their target. that being said many great photos have been taken in the first few meters below the surface, but the photographer was targeting shallow water species.
looking forward to seeing what the new season brings, and some new divers contributing.
