    October 2019 UW Photo Competition. Shallow Water.

    This will be my swan song as I can no longer dive, and so in the spirit of slowly fading away, I suggest a theme of Shallow Water, any photo must be in less than 3metres, the photographer need not be in water much less in scuba gear but of course can be, I would even accept split shots. The camera must get wet, or at least the housing, hopefully.
    Examples.








    Come on even Finless might find something. It should be obvious in the photo it is in less than 3m.

    Sorry to hear your diving is coming to an end

    Here is a Wraysbury pike having a little sunbathe on the ramp this Spring. It was very shallow indeed!

    Come on there must be a few more in "Shallow Water". Here's one I took last week snorkelling at "Roots" El Quesir. Which in spite of everyone's best efforts I have to say was a bit boring with no diving for me. The challenge of taking photos while snorkelling is enormous the surface is pitching about , you have a few seconds to grab a shot. However this I quite liked with my Olympus TG4 in a housing on full program mode. RAW file altered for sharpness contrast and exposure in Lightroom 6.

    Lets see a bit more effort for the last week, go find an aquarium and dunk your camera!

    Was it taken from a poor VHS copy of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid? If so it is disqualified, you must have taken the picture!

    VHS? I will have you know that my grasp of technology has always been excellent. I had Betamax!
