Double victory at Wetpixel #349

 

Parrotfish was clearly the thing in Wetpixel's Picture of the Week competition last week. My two images came in first and second.

The theme of the week was 'Scales', and voters had to choose between many great images.

My duo of parrotfish close- ups from Saudi-Arabia was a good choice, and voters agreed - resulting in a rare double victory.

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented my pictures!

Comments included 'beautiful', 'stunning' and 'very well suited to this week's theme' - which turned out to be spot on.

I'm very proud of this achievement, as I consider Wetpixel to be the highest quality weekly competition around.
 

 

These parrotfish images was voted first and second in the Wetpixel POTW competition #340. They show different parts of the same fish, a Cetoscarus bicolor or bicolor parrotfish.
While winning is certainly fun, a double is more than twice as satisfying!

This victory was my fourth win at Wetpixel POTW this year.

The parrotfish (it's actually the same fish) is a Cetoscarus bicolor, and was photographed at a night dive in Shi'b Ammar Laggon at the Farasan Banks in Saudi-Arabia on a trip with swedish dive tour operator Dyk & Resespecialisten.

A total of 46 pictures competed this week, and there very many strong entries from all over the world. Here are the top three images:
