Underwater Photo Contest | Wide Angle - Close Focus

4487 Entries Found: Page 10  of  167
shots taken with a WIDE ANGLE (or fisheye) lens having 1) a well defined close subject (usually strobe-lit) AND 2) a wide angle BACKGROUND with a second subject, usually a diver
Sometimes I find myself looking for the extraordinary when I am taken back by the simplistic. This image captures the latter in a small grouping of a barrel sponge, crinoids and anemone which collectively endow a variety of texture, shape and color.

I've been developing a lighting technique, and I thought the mermaid statue at Sunset House would be a perfect subject to employ it. I'm pleased with the result 😀 No Photoshop.

Red whip coral lending a strong contrast to the blue water column has always been a favorite.
