SCUBA DIVING, 10 Stunning Jellyfish

Photos 10 Stunning Jellyfish From Our Underwater Photo Contest By Scuba Diving Editors October 9, 2017 0 Comments Judging the Through Your Lens photo contest is one of our favorite parts of the year at Scuba Diving — but it’s also one of the most challenging. For the 2017 contest, we sifted through more than 2,500 awesome entries to find the best of the best in underwater photography. We wanted to highlight some of our favorite images that didn’t make the winner’s circle, but that blew us away nonetheless. Jellyfish are exciting to see on any dive. Here are our favorite jellies from the 2017 contest.   http://www.scubadiving.com/10-stunning-jellyfish-from-our-underwater-photo-contest          

Sarajevo, Underwater Photography Competition / la Repubblica, Napoli

    Sarajevo, Underwater Photography Competition MEDITERRANEAN PORTFOLIO 3 Place                     La rana pescatrice di Sorrento, un’esotica bavosa africana gialla, la medusa di Bacoli e una seppia, a Capo Miseno: un inno alla biodiversità del mare campano raccontato ed esaltato dai fotografi più bravi al mondo, rigorosamente campani. La quarta edizione del concorso di fotografia subacquea “Without borders” di Sarajevo incorona i talenti partenopei: sei sue dieci i campani finalisti della categoria “Portfolio Mediterraneo”, con un podio che parla interamente napoletano. E che, soprattutto, esalta la bellezza della fauna marina del Golfo di Napoli e dei suoi immediati dintorni. Al primo posto, Marco Gargiulo, figlio d’arte, premiato per tre scatti bellissimi che immortalano, nel mare della Costiera sorrentina, una bavosa africana dalla livrea gialla (una specie aliena arrivata attraverso il canale di Suez, ormai diffusissima), una rana pescatrice in versione notturna e uno spirografo in controluce. Con uno scatto a una medusa con lo sfondo, inconfondibile, del Vesuvio, Gargiulo si è anche classificato secondo nella categoria “grandangolo”. Al secondo posto nella categoria “Porfolio Mediterraneo”, Salvatore Ianniello, che ha scattato nel mare di casa, tra Bacoli e l’isola di Procida, immortalando una […]

UPY 2017 Underwater Photographer of the Year

    Underwater Photographer of the Year 2017   #UPI2017 Cat. Behavior Highly commended Image notes: “Such a delicate image and perfectly timed yet it still tells the story of two crabs taking a chance and seeing where their lives will take them. ” Peter Rowlands       Story photo Over the past few months, my photographic work has focused primarily on the large presence of species of jellyfish Rhizostoma pulmo, in the Gulf of Naples. In this picture a couple of crabs, Liocarcinus vernalis species, are its tenants. When the jellyfish rub the sandy seabed, the crabs jump on it and get carried to different areas.   Place: Miseno, Gulf of Naples,Italy.
