I would like to "cheat" and say these were taken underwater, but they weren't. I had to have a steady hand and to get them so they wouldn't blur. Low lighting situation.

What do you think?

Pretty good pictures if they were 'stolen' in an aquarium...

You don't need a very steady hand if you have a lens hood, especially a circular one: just apply it against the glass. This steadies the camera, insures that your lens is perpendicular to the glass (no deformations) and prevents reflections from lights behind you. Works best when your front lens doesn't move when you focus, but it is still workable otherwise. I even have shots taken with a long exposure, the camera standing on its lens+hood on the horizontal display glass in a museum.
