5th Place Nudibranch

Cedric Peneau

"Orange UFO"


The Story: My photographer friends and I often go snorkeling at night in those shallow rock pools to find various critters. That night the pool we had chosen was almost completely covered in a green algae. When we found this Umbraculum umbraculum orange slug in it, I immediately knew that the color contrast could be good , so I tried to get as low as possible to frame the slug with the algae in the background. I used a high aperture to get a blurry, soft background.
