UPY 2017 Compact - Highly Commended
'Coral safehaven' - Jenny Stromvoll

While searching for soft coral cowries inside the thistle corals, I came across this goby. For me the colour of the Dendronephthya flesh and the goby’s very translucent body and striking green eyes, would make a very delicate and soft photo. I wanted to get a photograph with a lot of depth to it, which was achieved by framing the goby with the soft coral branches. Personally this is one of my favourite photos as it has such a feminine touch to it.

Judge's comment: Peter Rowlands: Such good use of the out of focus foreground to draw the viewers eye in and the pastel colours are just gorgeous.
