UnderwaterPhotography.com International Contest.

Gold Medal Winner at the Largest Online Underwater Competition Worldwide.

I am very proud to announce that after winning a GOLD medal in 2007-2008 UnderwaterPhotography.com annual competition in “Wide Angle – Natural Light (no strobe)” category, this year I am the winner of the GOLD medal in “Close Focus – Wide Angle” CFWA Category.

I was up against 10283 entries in this category to get placed, so I am very happy with the result.
The annual contest of UnderwaterPhotography.com is one of the most popular online competitions worldwide, with thousands entries and participants over the year.
The winning shot is one of the few WA that I had the chance to take in my diving trip in lembeh with Tokina 10-17mm lens and Zen mini-dome port mostly because visibility was poor in more of my dives and I shot mainly macro.
A mini-dome is small dome port usually around 10cm in diameter and typically hemispherical in shape. They offer significant advantages to the underwater photographer and I have long considered them an essential piece of kit for certain images. Hope next time in Lembeh will be soon!
