    Mate - they are amazing. That seal looks like he has posed for photos before.

    Great capture.

    I know nothing about underwater shots apart from it takes very specialised gear to get "magazine quality" photos but these photos are great and certainly beaut advertising for what real people can do with the Olympus.

    Have you thought about contacting Olympus to see if they are in the market for real world photos for advertising?
    Could be some $$ in it.

    the seal just kept showing off the whole time and tried playing with our dogs! It was awesome because it doens't happen everyday. The seal rested his head a couple inches from my feet on the ground and just laid there watching me, its was pretty cool.

    no haven't thought about contacting Olympus about the photos.

    Most captive seals are real posers. Well done.
