UPY  Up and coming - Highly Commended
'Tail'
Erika Miura

In the winter, humpback whales come to Japan to raise their young. It is not easy to swim with the whales and it took me many days to finally make it happen. The baby whale swam around curiously, while the mother whale stood proudly and gently beside her child. I photographed their tails to capture the striking image of mother and child.

Judge's comment: Breaking the ‘rules’ is encouraged and even though appearing to swim away and therefore be a ‘no no’ , this image stands out as a good example of “Don’t be dominated by rules”. - Peter Rowlands
