Honorable Mention Mirrorless Wide Angle Ocean Art 2018 Pier Mane

Honorable Mention Mirrorless Wide Angle

Pier Mane


"From Beneath"


Pier won a 6 night dive package in Komodo, Indonesia with Solitude Liveaboards


The Story: Fine-spotted Moray eels at Darwin swim quickly through the rock bottom. With not many place to hide, the whole majestic body can be well observed. I noticed at a certain point the eels would stop and hug a rock - similar to snakes on the surface. What a panorama - hammerhead sharks are swimming above their heads. The whole dive was dedicated to capture the hills in this unique underwater environment and time the two in the same frame battling currents swimming hammerheads overhead. It was a challenging experience.

Location: Galapagos

Equipment Used:  Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II, Panasonic Lumix 8mm Fisheye Lens, Dual Subtronic Alpha Strobes.

Settings: F13, 1/80 sec, ISO 400
