UPY British Waters Wide Angle - Third
Blue Sharks provide one of the UK's finest big animal encounters. They are naturally bold, curious and characterful. Here a slow shutter speed combined with rear curtain sync and lots of flash, captures the shark swimming through the frame, whilst rendering the background with an oily, smooth texture. This created a more serene and naturalistic image than my usual, more dramatic front-curtain, accelerated panning portraits. Please support bite-back.com in their mission of Shark and marine conservation and to prevent overfishing of Shark & Ray species.
Judge's comment: Try as I might, I couldn’t ignore this perfect image of a comparatively recently over photographed subject. Quality and talent will always prevail.
