Congratulations to Amanda Blanksby, winner of the 2017 Open Portfolio. The judge’s comments were that each of the images in the portfolio reaches a very high technical standard in wide angle photography. Even though five out of six show a jetty landscape and its schooling population, the portfolio as a whole is not boring, with outstanding lighting and colours. The resulting images, taken at different spots and conditions, make this portfolio nicely balanced and an inspiration for all macro lovers to go out and try the wider view.
WAUPS would like to thank the ongoing sponsor of the Open Portfolio, The DiveTub. Cheers guys!
