A friendly trumpetfish stayed with me for a while. I liked the effect of seeing the background through the eye of the trumpetfish. 60mm macro
shortlistedShortlisted!
Bluestripe snapper
Tricky to keep steady enough for these types of shots. Xeno shrimp
The orbicular burrfish seemed very much at home in this old paint can
I particularly liked the colour contrasts of the anemone and waited until the anemonefish dropped into frame
The Giannis D is a great wreck to photograph with its dramatic resting position and relatively shallow water, Tokina 10-17 and magic filter
Male scalefin Anthia. Taken with D300, Nikkor 105 plus 1.4 Teleconverter. I laid on the sand for 30 minutes or so trying to get focus lock on a grouo of Anthias
Soft Coral Crab
Now, here's a really strange one! Phillodesmium briareum
I was really fascinated with this nudi's rudimentary eyes. Tambja morosa
What a fasinating nudibranch - It reminds me of a mythical winged horse
shortlistedShortlisted!
Final RoundThrough to 2011 awards final round judging
I had a great time with a group of Lionfish and wondered how they might look in black and white
The Spanish Dancer has to be one of the most thrilling of nudibranchs to encounter. Taken with Nikon 17-55 at 38mm, f18, 1/125
I was fascinated with this Stargazer's tongue lure and spent 20 minutes or so with it as it tried to capture passing prey
I think the contrast of the yellowmouth to the brown body with speckled blue markings is extremely striking so it was worth putting time in to get this shot. Taken with Inon Z240 with fiber optic snoots, 60mm macro and a wet close up lens
shortlistedShortlisted!
I stayed with this Blacktip grouper for quite a while as he flitted from one coral to another, but eventually it got used to me enough so that I could get close
