Second in Unterwasser Visions July 2012

The theme for the Unterwasser Visions photo contest in July 2012 was transparency, and my image was awarded a second place after having puzzled the jury by its strange appearance.


Anyone registered at the Unterwasser website can enter the Visions competition, which runs from January until November every year.

The image shows a small Sarsia tubulosa hydromedusae photographed in VesterĂĄlen in the northern part of Norway in May 2009.

The jury was puzzled by the focus plane in my image, and wrote the following in their review (translated from German):

We are wondering about the strange focus plane in this image. It looks like the photographer has used a tilt-shift lens, which to date has never been used under water. Hats off for this innovative image, which fits the bill perfectly this month.

Good team performance

Team Norway made it into second place in the team competition this month, just three points behind Germany.

Lill Haugen's 6th place this month also helped the team to advance one spot in the overall standings, were were are now fourth trailing Spain by just seven points.

After also having been awarded a second place in the June contest, I have now been propelled into a third place in the overall individual standings.
