UPY 2019 Black & White - Highly Commended
'Urban Trout' - Pekka Tuuri

This is a very urban trout. It lives in an urban runoff tube under a very busy motorway in Helsinki, Finland. The fish were born the same spring. I waited for the newborn trout to grow in size but not become too big as they become better swimmers quickly and thus impossible to photograph. I got my wife to volunteer as a model. She had to endure a mild odor and dropping spiders but she is a good sport! The photograph is a double exposure done in the camera.

Judge's comment: This shot was in then out and then back in again because it wasn’t perfect but in the end it couldn’t be ignored and deservedly so.
