Kirky,

After watching the time and effort you were putting in to each shot on Saturday, I'd say don't beat yourself up mate - the PREVIOUS shot (the one you've removed and replaced with the above) was every bit as good this one! At this rate you're going to amass a rather respectable photographic diving catalogue.

Keep up the good work mate - well impressive.

Was the original pic a jellyfish? the current one looks like a closeup of a section of "Dead mens fingers" (Alcyonium digitatum)

Bad luck, Pedant! It was a common-or-garden jellyfish.

Nice shots Kirky, but not too sure if Ben would appreciate even "virtual encounters" with that Lions mane.

Very Nice piccies Kirky.  I would love to be able to show my award-winning snaps from the weekend but when it came time to take some, the sodding batteries gave up the ghost!  Ah well - its a learning experience.  Almost as good as my 'must remember to remove the coat hanger from the drysuit before donning it' one.

So come on, what settings did you use for these?
