'Green Turtles in the rays' - Greg Lecoeur

During a diving trip to Tenerife, I came across these green turtles. It was early morning and the sunbeams pierced the surface. I adjusted the setting of my camera and I waited for the turtles to come close enough to trigger my camera. After a little while, the turtles were circling around us and it was a great opportunity to photograph them.

Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: A perfectly judged composition balancing the three elements - two turtles and the setting sun. Greg has timed the image to perfection to capture perfect symmetry in the turtle's poses.
