UPY  Wide Angle - Highly Commended
'Man and Fish' - João Paulo Krajewski

In Cenderawasih Bay, whale sharks often visit floating fishing platforms, where the locals get baitfish to catch larger fish. When I saw this situation, I decided I should get an image that compared the size of shark and man, and I immediately thought about a split image. I was advised that the flash could disturb the shark and was not allowed, so I had to get good light on the shark to avoid the platform’s shade. Also, as it was a split image, I should have a very calm sea, to avoid drops on the lens – and I was lucky of having it!
