Unterwasser Visions victory

German dive magazine Unterwasser host the Unterwasser Visions photo competition every month. In October 2005 my portrait of a Lemon Sole won - my first victory in this competition.



Posted on Mar 19, 2006

In the public vote online the image came in at 36. place of the 187 participating images, but was picked by the jury as one of the top 10 images. After their deliberations it went all the way to the top!

This is what the jury wrote in their comment: (translated from german):

The image has a strong visual impact with beautiful colours and a convincing crop".

In 2005, this image was also awarded a first place in the Norwegian Diving Federation Digital Photo Contest.

The image was shot using an Olympus C-5050 camera in the fjords just north of Bergen on the Norwegian west coast.

International jury

The jury in Unterwasser Visions consist of Seapics founder, Doug Perrine, art director of National Geographic World Andreas Blum, two times World Press Awards winner Christoph Gerigk, editor of Colorfoto magazine Michael Tafelmaier and editor-in-chief of Unterwasser, Dietmar Fuchs.
