    Do we have any other underwater photographers here?
    I returned from Roatan and my first time out w/ my new G12 set up.
    Posting a couple photos from my dives, looking forward to your C&C, and suggestions on what I can do to improve.

    Eventually when I get back into diving I would like to take some B&W underwater landscapes ... so I cannot help you much.

    FYI: There are some nice shipwrecks here in the Great Lakes.

    I know and I have to get out there sometime. I have family in Kenora and love it out there in the summer time.

    If you are ever in Michigan ... you should dive the Bermuda: Munising 2012
    She is a lovely ship. My wife and I did some underwater archaeology on her ... she is in pristine condition (can still see the grains in the wood) and very shallow.

    Good capture of the Basset, they're hard to get a good shot of as they are in constant random motion. Also surprise at you seeing a turtle at Roatan. Been there twice and had not seen any turtles. Nice composition though with the surface.

    I used to occasionally borrow or rent a Nikonos V back in the mid 80's.. but never got really serious about underwater photography. Afraid what little I remember wouldn't be much help! I was always to busy trying to pretend I was just another fish!

    Nice shot of the basslet... they are lovely! I do have some nice cleaner shrimp shots... but no longer have the negatives, or I would scan them.

    There are tons of turtles in Roatan now. The Marine Park has stepped up and put a heavy clamp down on the turtle hunting and illegal fishing. My first trip down there was last year, and there were turtles but not that many. This year there were turtles on practically every dive. That one there couldn't care less what I was doing, I swam quite a long way to get him and got quite close.
    The Bassets down there could care less about me taking their picture, they seemed to almost enjoy it, lol. Now the rest of the fishes, they didn't want anything to do with me. :lmao:

    Hey, another diver!

    I don't yet have a housing for my T3i, so right now I'm stuck shooting the SeaLife DC1200, but one day I'll get the funds to take the Canon out with me on dives :p
