UPY 2017 Portrait - Commended
'Hyppocampus guttulatus double exposure' - Adriano Morettin

I tried photographing this seahorse for several months because I wanted to do exactly this type of photography with double exposure made directly underwater without changing the lens and performing two consecutive shots. When at last I have found him I thought that this was the chance of a lifetime and I did not have let slip out a series of shots that I consider among the best I've done in my long career as an underwater photographer.

Judge's comment: Martin Edge: A stunning shot and another favourite of mine. The balance of the composition and the weight between seahorse and sunbeams is perfect. The colour combinations between the two also work so well together.
