Not only that this is a good shot with superb exposure, it also wakes us all up and reminds us what we are diving and shooting for. A very clear message in your photo, Roland....and this makes it a well deserved winner-shot :-)
message this message is importantHi Roland,
Your photo is important. We must all try to fight illegal measures in the ocean and in nature.
You've got my vote for a hotshot.
Photography is very much about evoking feelings and you certainly succeed here, albeit on a sad background.

message Hi Christian,
thank you very much for you vote. I can give my signature under your words. I know, this shot is not really a competition photo, because we would like to see the nice underwater world in a beautiful atmosphere. But such images we should have always bear in mind, to not forget that it's our responsibility to make such conditions public. Thanks again Christian.
Best, Roland
