eventually i would like a nice slr can't afford one at the moment there is a trade-off tho too higher quality but more intrusive on the dive experience + allot more gear to lug around on the bicycle. heres a favorite shot from yesterday

Again, some awesome photo's!

Have you tried any red or polarization filters with your gopro? I think these could possibly help with underwater colour correction, especially reef shots.
