2nd place Fine Art Photographer of the Year
Dr Nick More Manado, Indonesia
A porcelain crab feeding. "The porcelain crab is a very common but charismatic critter that lives in a symbiotic relationship with their host anemone," says photographer Dr Nick More. "They wave their fan like setae, to catch food in the current. The lighting, here, is a single Inon Z240 strobe behind the anemone skirt, to backlight the crab in the act of catching its food in a raging current. A fast shutter speed provides the black background."
