UPY Black and White - Highly Commended
'Hunting Sea Lion'
Sardines swarm the small volcanic rock island of Los Islotes in Espiritu Santo Marine Park, but catching one is not an easy task for the Sea Lion residents. Inside an archway through the island, This lone Sea Lion was swooping in trying to seperate an individual Sardine from the protection of their group. In this moment, through the lens, I envisioned a monochrome conversion to highlight the distant silhouette of the Sea Lion, the shear number of Sardines, separation of subjects and the lighting within the arch.
Judge's comment: A striking composition, full of energy and action with dynamic fish and perfectly posed sea lion. It is a fantastic picture, one the judges felt would be equally successful in colour.
