UPY Compact - Highly Commended
It was a cloudy day, what in Italy we call “cielo a pecorelle”. I was shooting macro but when I saw the rays of light, I converted the setup to wide angle, because there was a lot of barrel jellyfish in the water and it was really wonderful.
I was shallow, around 3 meters deep, and began to play with the sun and the jellyfish until I found the desired composition, with the crag on the right and the clouds on the left, I was lucky because the jellyfish was perfectly positioned in front of the sun like a starship going “Ad Astra”.
Judge's comment: The photographer made a very good call to change the lens and the dive due to the opportunities. The jellyfish along with the sky almost looks like a painting with the sun just above it. Perfect composition and very well executed. - Tobias Friedrich
