2018 Ocean Art Contest Winners

Hi everyone, 

 

I am a big fan of nature photography in general, but there is something especially fascinating about underwater photography earth

 

The winners of the 2018 Ocean Art Underwater Photo Competition were recently announced, and I thought you might like to check out some of the amazing photos that came out of it! You can find them all of the winning images on their website here, and I put a couple below to give you a sneak peek:

They are all fantastic @EmilieT but I love the Best of Show: the Devil Rays, 1st place: the Humpback Whale and calf and 2nd place: the paddle boarders.

 

Wish I could take pictures like that.

 

There is so much underwater life happening all the time every day. You couldn't ever run out of things to photograph.

Those are gorgeous ones, I agree @Glory1. smiling

 

I'm not big on swimming or going in the sea/ocean generally so these underwater photos are showing me a side of nature that I couldn't see any other way. I think that's what makes underwater photos so fascinating for me. And as you mentioned there are always new things to capture so it's a constant wonder! 🌊

There's some wonderful things to be seen below our oceans. (I loved Attenborough's Blue Planet)

I like the Dancing Devil Rays and the Dancing Jellyfish...and many more. All beautiful in their own way...

I love the colours in the Sharp-eared enope squid (Ancistricheirus lesseurii) photo and the clownfish eggs! And also the yellow is beautiful in "Shell Feeding". heart eyes

I keep going back to look at more of them, including the ones you mentioned - I can't get enough of how beautiful they are. heart eyes

 

I found another underwater photography contest that announced their 2018 winners recently as well, and they have some stunning photos too! You can have a look on the official Underwater Photographer of the Year website for an overview of all the winners and runner-ups if you're curious:

Amazing photos @EmilieT. I love 'Lovebirds' and 'An Evening Snorkel' but they're all quite stunning.

The colours in Evening Snorkel are stunning, good spot @Glory1 - and great way for me to start the day smiling

Glad to hear it @EmilieT. The colours are what attracted me to the photo and the more I looked at it the more I liked it.
