First place at Wetpixel POTW #313


The Wetpixel Picture of the Week competition has reached it's 313th edition, and my 'Pipeface' image was voted the best of the week.

The theme of the week was 'Selective Focus', and I entered this image which I think illustrate the limitations and possibilities this gives us quite well.

The Wetpixel crowd apparently agreed with me on this, and comments included statements like 'now that is one hell of a shot' and 'wow, you nailed this one'.

Thanks to all for commenting and voting!

It's been a while since I did well in the weekly competition, so this victory was very welcome - especially since I recently discovered that the weekly winners go on to a Picture of the Year contest with a one week liveaboard price!

That means I already have a ticket in next year's overall competition.

 
This picture of a snake pipefish (Entelurus aequoreus) entitled "Pipeface" went to the top in Wetpixel POTW #313.
The pipefish pictured is a snake pipefish (Entelurus aequoreus), photographed at Vikaneset just south of Kristiansund on the Norwegian west coast.

My second entry, a close-up portrait of a small goby, came in 7th, so this was a very good week for me.

A total of 78 pictures competed this week, which is a good number compared to the last few weeks. Here are the top three images:
