UPY  Macro - Highly Commended
'Octocorallia (soft coral) close-up' - Pash Baker

This was the trip on which I first started to use close up diopters. I borrowed a +8 from a friend and quickly became fascinated with the extra level of detail this provided. These small soft coral polyps needed careful lighting, so I experimented using backlighting (another first for me) to separate them from the background. To achieve this, I detached the strobe from the arm and handheld it behind the subject.
