Honorable Mention Portrait

 Frank Begun


The Story: We were making our first dive of the day on the Raja Ampat Aggressor. I found a hawkfish at a depth of around 65-70 feet perched on the coral and was able to capture the image of the fish. It's long nose made me think of the literary character Cyrano de Bergerac. Post processing primarily involved cropping and global changes to sharpness, contrast and saturation.
