July 10th: Ocean Geographic Pictures of the Year 2017/18 Pascal Award

I’ve been honored for the second year to have the Ocean Geographic Pictures of the year naming one of the categorie THE PASCAL LECOCQ AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT, along side the legendaries Ernie Brooks , David Doubilet, Ron and Valerie Taylor, Stephen Frink , Alex Mustard, Michael Aw and others.
The Creative Vision – the Pascal Lecocq Award for Outstanding Achievement – looked for unique, surprising, artistic interpretations of the ocean (intertidal or from the surface, abstract or ambiguous, but has to be executed to exacting photographic techniques). We looked for a distinct, well thought out process, originality and an attempt to convey a greater understanding of our watery planet.
The competition is host by the Australian magazine Ocean Geographic .

Thanks Michael Aw, Wildlife photographer, Author, Founder Ocean Geographic, Senior Fellow International League of Conservation Photographers, Fellow – Explorers Club, www.michaelaw.com. Ocean Geographic magazine (Australia) encourages deeper appreciation of the beauty and the fragility of our ocean planet with the use of the finest imageries and passionate essays of the sea.

Last year results.

Winner CV020

Using all effects from the lightroom doesn’t mean the pinnacle of originality, on the contrary, getting the right point of view could be able to reveal the viewer’s own creativity. “All in a bubble” could title this shot letting us connecting the microcosm and the macrocosm, saying that life, the one of those water-lilies, the one of the little insect in the middle bottom, and our life are tied to the great architecture of the universe and that we should protect it. The focus on the bubbles stuck beneath the leaves projects us in the orb given by the lens like the great graphic artist MC.Escher would suggest as a “mise en abyme”. Don’t let our blue bubble “Earth” and Life/organic and vegetal – composed of air/the little bubble and the sky, water/clouds, earth /lilies and forest rooted in it, and fire/sun and colors – with the great contribution of this photography, burst by our fault.

 

Runner up CV047

Composition is everything, whatever you want to create an harmonious picture (best using the golden ratio or a symmetric pattern) or a well balance “painting”. A simple effect like in this “shrimps encounter” makes a huge impact just using the right layout.

 

Very Special mention CV002

Effect and composition of this “blue eye” is catching yours…Winner CV020
