Third in Unterwasser Visions

The theme in the Unterwasser Visions photo competition for january was Eat and get eaten, and my picture of a starfish chasing a blue-rayed limpet claimed third place.

All together 110 images was entered in the competition, but only 93 was accepted and published.

The jury wrote the following about my entry (translated from german):

The scene freezes the blood in your veins. Even though the chase, as stated in the title, takes place in slow-motion, the fact that you can look the victim straight in the eyes lends the image an almost unbearable excitement.

This is excellently supported by the low camera angle and the narrow view. The implied diagonal from bottom left to the upper right corner is also pleasing".

The image was shot at Gulen Dive Resort in october 2007.
