UPY Portrait - Highly Commended
I took this photo in the summer on Ishigaki Island, Japan. The seawater temperature of Ishigaki Island in the summer exceeds about 30 degrees Celsius, and zooxanthellae escaped from the body of the sea anemone, and their bodies lost their original color and faded to white. It's very beautiful, but it's one of the problems of global warming.
Judge's comment: Sometimes very simple subjects are not easy to photograph, like clownfish. The photographer did an excellent job with a great composition and the patience to wait for the perfect moment. The colors round off this image. - Tobias Friedrich
