News / Underwater Photographer of the Year

10 Mar 2020

Oleg Gaponyuk took a second place in the Wide Angle nomination at a very prestigious international underwater photography contest «Underwater Photographer of the Year» — UPY 2020.

Judge's comment: "One of my favourites from the entire competition. The idea of a panoramic frame to present this image is very forward thinking. The even spread of light from all four corners, top to bottom is superb. The lighting in particular, very subtle indeed. Last but not least, the outline of a diver and torch way behind in the blue water background. All of these elements together create huge depth perspective throughout. I find this particular image nothing short of magnificent!" — Martin Edge
