Very nice shots for your first time out. As you get more time you will find that you get much pickier over which shots you will keep and which you will delete. I'm going back over the last 8 years and deleting gb's worth of pics that I no longer deem worthy (I really didn't back then either, but I was too lazy to take a critical eye to them).

Good luck. Now we will want to see more pictures of everything.

Those shots were with a cannon t3i eos rebel? You just use a different lens right? I'll have give mine a try.

I use a rebel XSi and have to turn off the auto focus and manually focus and come up with some great pictures. Now if I could just get the fish to hold still.....LOL!

I won't be as embarassed to show them either. I finally got a close up of the supposed hydroids today, I'll be uploading a pic of them in a few. I couldn't see them clearly enough to tell, but this macro lens is phenominal.

Yeah. I used this lens specifically. It's awesome. I have yet to get my tripod, but it'll help big time. For every 1 shot that's worth looking at, there are 20 that aren't because I shake when I take the pics.

I thought I was going to have to (manually focus), but with that lens, I didn't. On my wide angle lens, I did... if you decide to get a macro lens, the one I linked above seems awesome. I took some pics of a dollar bill last night (idk if you saw them on my fb or not) and the detail that you don't normally see is amazing!

They are, but nothing to be concerned about.

@Jon,

Dump that out of focus pic. The tripod makes a huge difference. It did for me. When using it turn off auto focus and auto everything. Use the timer or a remote to totally eliminate any shake. The sharpness is incredible.

@Doug. I did take some HD video with my waterproof camera. The first few were just too long. I have that's a little over 4 minutes. I will try for about 2 good minutes this weekend and then post . I really like what I saw, but it needs some editing for the shake and movement (slow focus at times).

Which one is out of focus? They all look focused to me.

I think they were talking about the picture with what you think are hydroids. They probably didn't know that.
