Byron Bay Shootout – Day 5

Matt Shepherd's photo of the day

Macro and mid range zoom lenses were the choice for most shooters today at the Byron Bay Shootout.  The water had clouded up a touch, giving most photographers the excuse they needed to start concentrating on the macro category.  The results we’ve seen thus far have been great, meaning this will be one more hard category for the judges to pick a winner.

Another section not to forget about is the categories for the compact cameras.  With about 1/3 of our shooters using compacts, often equipped with strobes and wet lenses, we’ve got high expectations of what these guys and girls can produce.

The atmosphere in between dives around Sundive has been great too, with loads of smiles on diver’s faces, and non-stop camera talk.  The Scubapix showroom has also been a popular place to play around with the latest toys.  Tonight’s State Of Origin game may well create a rivalry between some of the divers however (go NSW!).

As I sign off watching the sun set over the bay, I can only hope the following few days of the comp continue to provide these great conditions we’ve been experiencing.
