Silver Medal at Underwater Photography

My goldentail moray portrait was awarded a silver medal at Underwater Photography's 2010/11 annual photo contest.

MEDAL WINNER: This juvenile goldentail moray was extremely curious, and probably saw it's own reflection in my camera. Getting the tight crop was easy; keeping it in focus was not.

The popular website has just published all the medal winners and runners up, and I am very pleased to win another medal in this prestigious competition.

Coveted accolade

Winning here (or even just being placed) 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", writes Underwaterphotography.com about the competition.

Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded for the top three from each category in order of merit.

The judges are industry professionals and previous year's World Champions.

The image shows a juvenile goldentail moray, Gymnothorax miliaris, and was shot at the Invisibles divesite at Bonaire in December 2009.

The tightly-cropped portrait qualified for a place among the Monthly Hotshots in April 2010, and thus automatically for a place in the finals.

In addition to the silver medal I also won the right to display the virtual medal to the left.
