UPY 2017 Wide Angle - Commended
'Sun shine after the storm' - Mario Vitalini

It was a fairly choppy week and the surface conditions where less than ideal for the classic "cathedral" sun beams. Swimming around Sha'ab Claudia cave system in Fury Shoal I noticed our dive guide, Annette, pointing her torch to the ground. Everything felt into place and this was my take on a classic shot.

Judge's comment: Martin Edge: Dramatic use of light both from the torch of the diver and the natural sunbeams. There is so much image depth in this shot which emphasise the beams in the background and the centre of interest - the lamp of the diver. A good choice also in removing any colour with a mono like treatment.
