Top result in Unterwasser Visions

In October 2009, Unterwasser Visions photo competition asked for miniature creatures, and my little coral hermit played the part wonderfully.

Shot at The Marine Sanctuary off Alona Beach at Panglao Island in the Philippines, this cute little critter was awarded a 6th place among the 78 images in the competition.

Competition in the second to last month of the year was fierce, with several of the favourites claiming their stake at the top of the leaderboard.

This is what the jury wrote about my image (translated from german):

The wonderful plasticity of the image is noteworthy, and it has great depth of field. The sharpness is especially good by the eyes which are wonderfully framed by the circular opening. A real piece of eyecandy".

The image shows a coral hermit of the Paguritta genus, which lives in deserted crevices left behind by tube worms on the coral reefs.

Despite the relatively good result I have dropped to 8th spot in the competition. With a total of 23 points I have no hope of claiming the title.
