Here's a selection of great photos that won a print competition in England a few weeks ago

BSoUP is the british society of underwater photographers.

My favorites are Gareth Millson's pike photo, and Trevor Rees's yellow boxfish. How about yours?

ok, I just went to Trevor's web site and read this:

This is a composite image using a Nikon D50 with 10.5mm and 60mm lenses.

So a composite image is combining two images. still a beautiful photo, but I'm surprised those are allowed in photography competitions. It think it should have been in a creative category, what do you think?

I see what you mean. Looks to me like the winning photo had the "front" subject coming out of this photo:

Very strange that this would be allowed. Creative category makes sense to me!

I think it should be disallowed from that category. He is also a bit disingenuous since in one place he says it was taken with the 10.5 and in another he owns up that it is a composite. In one competition it was shown as a print, and while quite nice it is NOT a photograph.

This one was my favorite. What cute little fish!

I looked up info on Swanage Pier, Dorset... Now I want to go and see some critters under an old pier in jolly-ole England! :)
