Dive Fest 2010                                                            

Held over the long weekend of May 1-3rd, the Dive Fest was a great success. Lots of divers enjoying the demonstrations, presentations, trade stands and even some diving!

The 'On the Day' photo competition comprised three categories: Wide Angle, Macro, and Fish Portrait. I was lucky enough to win both the Macro and Fish Portait categories with shots of a scorpion fish, plus Third Place in the Fish Portrait Category with a stickleback. Note that in this type of competition, minimal post processing is allowed so these images contain some defects eg backscatter, which would normally be removed.

Many thanks to Dive Magazine and to Cameras Underwater for providing the prizes.
