4th in Unterwasser Visions November 2007

The results of the last Unterwasser Visions photo contest in 2007 has just been announced. My squat lobster was awarded a 4th place in November, before the winter break.


This Galathea strigosa squat lobster was awarded a 4th place in Unterwasser Visions in November 2007.


Posted on Dec 1, 2007
The theme for the November contest was "Crabs and Lobsters", and a record 190 images were entered.

As usual most images were from the tropics, and it is nice to see images from colder waters do well.

The juvenile Galathea strigosa squat lobster had no problem competing, and was awarded a 4th place by the jury.

This is what they wrote about my image (translated from German):

An unusual image in terms of the subject matter and the almost explosive colours. A modern composition with diagonal lines and good contrast both in colour and patterns.

The unusually colourful background is caused by a red cushion star, Porania pulvillus, on which the squat lobster is sitting. Like many echinoderms, it provides a very nice background for small critters.

The image was shot at Gulen Dive Resort on the Norwegian west coast in March 2007.

Join the contest!
