UPY 2016 Wide Angle - 3rd
'Lagoon' - Greg Lecoeur

French Polynesia is an amazing place for nature lovers. In the lagoon of Moorea I was snorkeling with an abundance of marine life, most notably these black tip sharks. The topography of the mountains in the background inspired me to realize this half and half photo.

Judge's comment: Peter Rowlands: If ever there was an image that captured 'excitement' it is this perfect combination of frozen movement, split level scene setting and great composition. The reflected surface lighting on the sharks and the sand lifts it to another level.
