UPY Portrait - Commended
I have a sweet spot for these yellow seahorses... Last summer, when travel bans were lifted I visited Croatia again. Just by the coast of Razanj, it took my buddy and me the length of two dives until we got lucky and found our model. The depth was very shallow, maybe 5 meters or so and the seabed had patches of sand so I could create a really bright and light-colored, shallow DOF-ed portrait of the Yellow Dragon of the Adriatic.
Judge's comment: Beautiful yellow seahorse with excellent eye contact. The sandy colour of water is a pleasant background against the shallows. I do like the way that the author has cropped the top of the seahorse. At first I never would have thought it would work but on viewing this many times the authors decision was correct.
