UPY Portrait - Commended
George Kuo-Wei Kao
During the pandemic, I was once depressed because I couldn’t go diving abroad. On a chance outing, I found beautiful little crabs in a local stream. So, I took photography equipment to different places every week to observe and try to photograph the ecology of the stream. After many shoots, capturing a perfect reflection became one of my goals. From the beginning of this idea to the completion of the shooting, it took me several months. Basically, I took pictures every time I had the opportunity. When I clicked the shutter on this one, I knew I got it.
Judge's comment: It is a rare gift to find such beauty in a crab. Stunning. It is a wonderful celebration of the underwater nature close to home.
