UPY Macro - Commended
Ipah Uid Lynn
I've always loved Hairy Frogfish but this was the first time I had seen one that was extremely hairy! My first thought was it would be fantastic if I made it's mouth glow and it worked as I snooted from a different angle and using 2 snoots; one for the whole body and another one directly into his mouth. Then I thought why not have a little fun and edit it using the spectral art filter which works well when there is a lot of hair! The end result looked like a horror monster from a halloween movie. This was my first time using a DSLR so I was very happy with the result.
Judge's comment: This is a good choice of a subject and a special effect which combine to create an eye catching but not gratuitous image. - Peter Rowlands
