My jaw is hanging a bit loose though.

You have good timing and have managed to squeeze beautiful colors and shapes, interesting composition and interesting subjects into your underwater photos.

For my own reference on the D60 image quality underwater, I would be very interested in seeing a fullsize jpg version of the "A colorful triggerfish" photo from April 8. That looks like a terrific species photo (of a Blue Jaw Triggerfish, Xanthichthys auromarginatus), and it could be easily rotated and put on a blue background to make it a "bullseye" photo.

Unfortunately there are several of your otherwise great shots where the subjects looks slightly out of focus. Did you use autofocus or manual focus? Did you find the D60 very difficult to focus underwater, or is it simply a matter of getting more underwater practice with your new camera?

BTW, how did you make the "this is straight from the camera!" photo of Kenny on April 3? Looks dangerous!-- ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ http://hem.bredband.net/maxstr
