3rd Place Compact Wide Angle

Andrea Michelutti

"Ad Astra"



The Story: It was a cloudy day, what in Italy we call “cielo a pecorelle”. I was shooting macro but when I saw the rays of light, I converted the setup to wide angle, because there was a lot of barrel jellyfish in the water and it was really wonderful.

I was in the shallow, around 3 meters deep, and I began to play with the sun and the jellyfish until I found the desired composition, with the crag on the right and the clouds on the left, I was lucky because the jellyfish was perfectly positioned in front of the sun like a starship going “Ad Astra”.
