4th Place Macro
"Dancer Sea Worm"
The story: This picture is a detail of Sabella spallanzani, a marine worm which is like a flower (it’s gills). This organism is at dept of 20 mt and is a difficult subject because at a little movement of water or variation of light it’s retired itself quickly in it’s tube, so, often, you can get only one shot. I try many dives to take this shot, looking for “my” right allineament and spiral movement of gills in a little frame for isolate only the yellow of form of Sabella with the blue of the sea.
