Runner-up at Underwater Photography


Underwater Photography has made public the winners of the annual contest. I made runner-up in the Wide angle divers category.

Images that achieve runner up status were considered by the judges to be of exceptional merit and made it to the final reckoning from amongst thousands of other entries, writes Nikki Sutton of Underwater Photography.

The image features two "astronauts" training in the ESA Neutral Buoyancy Facility in Cologne, Germany.

It was shot during a Nikon workshop with renowned german photographer Eckhard Krumpholz in September 2009

Thanks to everyone at Spacediving in Cologne for hosting this event, and generally making this a very enjoyable weekend.

The contest does not feature any big prizes, but I was awarded the virtual medal to the left to use on my homepage.

Winning or even being placed in this competition is Underwater Photography's most coveted accolade because it says you succeeded in the most competitive environment there is, against the top talent of the moment, it says on the website.

Needless to say, I'm very pleased with the recognition and achievement.

The judges comprise of industry professionals, previous year's World Champions and site moderators.
