UPY British Waters Wide Angle - Highyl Commended
'Blur and motion'
The SS Rosalie is an inshore wreck off the coast of Weybourne in England. It is one of my favourite dive locations in the area, suitable for wide-angle and macro photography. On this particular evening dive, I used my fisheye lens as I expected the bib fish (Trisopterus luscus), inhabiting the wreck, to aggregate together in large numbers. I wanted to capture their abundance and also to evoke a sense of movement. To achieve this, I used a slow shutter speed to blur the background and my two flashguns helped to keep the foreground swimming fish sharp at the same time.
Judge's comment: A transportive image, rich with feeling that uses a long exposure as a starting point and captures the feeling of being underwater through the swirling textures of fish.
