Runner-up at DivePhotoGuide

The inaugural monthly underwater photo competition at top photo site DivePhotoGuide drew more than 400 images - and my image of a sea angel came in third!



Posted on Nov 7, 2009

The stylistic image featuring a Clione limacina had what the jury was looking for in August. I am pretty sure that the image stood out from the crowd, although competition was fierce.

Here's what DivePhotoGuide wrote about the competition:

Our inaugural monthly contest theme was Nudibranchs, and boy did we get some killer entries. Over 400 of them!"

The image was shot in April 2009 just outside Kristiansand on the southern coast of Norway, on a trip with Nortech Diving.

The competition was won by Esteban Toré with a beautiful shot of a nudibranch and diver, presumably shot with a fisheye + teleconverter. It looks like one of the double exposures from the "old days"! Second spot went to Kevin Lee.

The contest was judged by Jeff de Guzman, Matt Weiss and Jason Heller.
