UPY 2018 Portrait - Highly Commended
'Oceanic white tip shark' - Greg Lecoeur
In recent years, oceanic white-tip sharks have become rarer in Red Sea but they are back around the offshore reefs of Egypt. Diving with these magnificent predators is a privilege and offers incredible photographic opportunities and to witness the symbiosis with pilotfish. Curious, confident and inquisitive they do not hesitate to approach the divers and I was able to capture this image on our decompression stop.
Judge's comment: An excellent shot of an iconic creature. Well lit and framed. The small fish bottom right and the faint sunlight top right all contribute.
