3rd Place Mirrorless Wide-Angle

Pier Mane

"Walking on Water"


Pier won a 7-night dive package from El Galleon Beach Resort



The Story:  The Solomon islands are a special place, beyond pristine reefs and world-class diving, they are one of the few places where there is a community of local tribes and population scattered throughout the archipelago.  I have wanted to capture the Salomon essence, of great coral reefs and incredible inhabitants.  It almost seems the kids learned to paddle before they walk.  While diving, I noticed above canoes where following my bubbles, it was the end of the day…so here was my opportunity capture the kids, the canoes, the reef and a stunning sunset as the backdrop.

Location:  Solomon Island

Camera:  Olympus EM1 and Panasonic 8mm Fisheye Lens (F10, 1/250, ISO 250) with Dual Subtronic Strobes
