UPY 2018 Wide Angle - Third
'Evening Snorkel' - Brook Peterson

I was practicing sunset split shots in the calm waters around Ras Um Sid when I noticed several people walking down the pier with snorkel gear. My first thought was to wait until they were out of the way, but then I realized that THEY were the story. I wanted to preserve how the colors in the sunset seemed to mimick the colors of the corals so I decided a silhouette shot would meet my needs best.

Judge's comment: This lovely sunset split shot is enhanced with the other snorkelers on the pier. Most of us would have avoided them but Brook had other intentions which made for a dynamic different image .
