UPY My Backyard - Runner Up
'Pink and Golden'
Fisheye lenses with circular frames have always fascinated me, and when Olympus made a small one for the TG-6, I was anxious to test it. This image was actually part of the research and development of a dome port constructed to make shooting over/unders easier. The port is made from a 6 inch dome that allows you to see the water line more precisely, and the image I created was to be a still life that could be reproduced consistently with any camera and lens combination for comparison. I floated in a belly boat that anglers use so that I could sight over the housing to see where the water line was. The Golden Retriever- Butters, is always happy to photo bomb any image in the pool.
Judge's comment: Excellent split shot with a circular six inch dome. The flower in the foreground is very close up and boosts the colours. Butters the retriever is the strength of this image, providing the depth perspective which results in the topside interest.
