Honorable Mention Compact Macro

"The Devil in Me"


The Story: I was in the wonderful island of Siladen, north Sulawesi (Indonesia), in the dive site “Pangalisan” when I came across this gorgeous Nembrotha kubaryana.

I love this species and I'm addicted to colour, so its greens and oranges are hypnotic for me.

As soon as possible I mounted my +11 magnification lens and the snoot on my strobe, while previewing the result the final result I wanted to achieve.

After a while I managed to get the correct combination of focus, magnification, subject position and snoot light - which exposed only the subject's face.
