Open Portfolio winner

Congrats to Chandy de Wit, winner of the 2016 Open Portfolio Competition.  Judge Tony Hewitt said it was a “strong entry, sharing some interesting ‘moments’ with beautiful use of strong compositions and color. Bottom left image has a lot of character, I particularly like the attitude demonstrated in the turtle. All images have a strong sense of moment and were great portrayals of their chosen subject matter.”

Congrats also to runner-up Daniel Lloyd.

Our thanks to portfolio sponsor Scuba Imports/Dive Tub.
