I'm humble, proud and very happy that my photo "Bottoms up" placed third in the Wide Angle International category in the Under Water Photographer of the year competition!

The competition received 2500 entries from under water photographers from 40 countries around the world. A big thanks to Alex Mustard, Peter Rowlands and Martin Edge for their huge effort in making this who...le thing work!

Here is the official judge comment about my image: "In every photography competition there is usually one unique image that stands out from the crowd, and this is it. " In truth, the initially positive effect of such an eye-catching image can fade when viewed more. This shot, however, keeps growing."
