What the Jury says

Ann Karin Matberg
This picture caught my eye right away! The moray eel is really "popping" out of the picture, and that is caused by the color of the moray itself, but most of all because of the excellent lighting. The almost transparent fish seems like it is glowing in the dark. The graduation of the shading on the left side gives depth to the picture, so does the slight view of the dorsal fin. The eye is pin sharp, and the composition is well executed. Sometimes having a pitch black background can be boring, but not on this picture! It accents the black coloration on the moray, and gives the fish an even more ghostlike feeling.
