Finalist Conservation (Impact) Photographer of the Year
Gabrielle Lui Cambodia
"This image vividly shows the human impact on marine life," says Lui. "Descending down on my dive, I saw numerous discarded fishing nets covering the coral reef. Many of them had fishes trapped inside, trying to escape. Placing my camera in between my legs I attempted to rip the net around this individual but soon noticed it was too late."
