Under My Umbrella
"I wanted to document and tell a story about the individual turtles and add some real drama to it," Miller wrote in a description accompanying the photograph, which won first prize in the pool/conceptual category of this year's Ocean Art Competition. Miller added drama by enhancing the colors and color contrast and by adding blurring effects to the background of the shot.
"Being able to capture this photograph made me very excited," wrote Joaquin Guierrez, who won first place in the portrait category of the Ocean Art Competition for this shot.
Under My Wing
"The low aperture needed to shoot the depth of field I wanted with the wet lens definitely made this a challenge but fortunately after a couple shots I got what I wanted and the male shuffled over," Tamis wrote in his description of the photograph. "With a nod to the father to be I left him to care to his young while I retreated to the surface."
The photograph won the 2016 Ocean Art contest's top prize for supermacro shots.
