First place at Wetpixel POTW #319


The Wetpixel Picture of the Week competition has reached it's 319th edition, and my 'Shadow Diver' image was voted the best of the week.

The theme of the week was 'Shadows', and I entered this image bacause I think it illustrates the topic quite well.

The Wetpixel crowd apparently agreed with me on this, and comments included statements like 'lovely image' and 'beautifully done'.

 
This picture taken in the Regona cave at the Capeverdian island of Sal entitled 'Shadow Diver' went to the top in Wetpixel POTW #393.

Thanks to all for commenting and voting!

This was my second win at Wetpixel in 2010. My image entitled 'Pipeface' won in #313, when the topic was Selective focus.

The picture was taken inside a cave called Regona at the Island of Sal in Cape Verde.

Modelling was done by Romina Andreini of Cabo Verde Diving, a very friendly and professional dive shop in Santa Maria. Thanks!


We did two dives in Regona and another cave called Dois Ohlos, and they rank among my favourite dives from all over the world.

A total of 76 pictures competed this week. Here are the top three images:
