    Wow, 11 lbs?? Even wearing my 3/2 wetsuit, I'd go down like a rock!! In re to 'swimming with ...', I agree. Once you get used to it, not an issue at all ...

    Now, if I could only find a way to get my wife to carry a couple of 'extra pounds' for those times when, after doing some deeper stuff, I find myself a bit 'light' for taking shots at 10-15ft ...:wink:

    A few pictures from my last visit to Grand Cayman, including the first Octopus I have been able to get images on...

    I just started snorkeling and I am amazed at what I was able to see just 6 ft below the water surface. I am currently stationed in Okinawa,Japan. The waters are clear throughout most of the year and I figured I should try to snorkel to see the ocean life. The camera I use was the Canon Powershot D10.

    Wow! that picture is really great! I want to take picture's like that. Can I take picture's like that by just snorkeling? or should I dive deeper? that was very beautiful!

    ---------- Post added ----------

    I really miss diving every time I see picture's like this but I don't have enough time to do this even visit beach for a day. But I will put some time again to dive so I can see this kind under water again in personal and I will buy new cam so I can have my own picture with this beautiful scenery!

    Yes, you can take pics like this by snorkeling. The water depth was about 6ft and depending on the areas there can be even more marine life. It takes planning and research to find a good snorkel spot but I'm sure there are spots where you live.

    Glad you like the shots! Pretty simple set-up for me...either a Canon D10 or Olympus TG820 point and shoot. No flash and a low ISO setting.

    impressive, very. how much post work do you have to do or do you just have the clearest water on earth to shoot in? but seriously, bravo.

    As for post processing, the "I'm Felling Lucky" function in Google's Picasa is all I regularly use. It sure helps that Cayman's water has some of the best visibility around. :)
