The organizers of the Underwater Festival MIMA in Costa Brava, Spain, 5/6 - 9/6, had decided that they wanted to invite a Danish underwater photographer this year to participate in their underwater photo competition. They asked the Danish Sportsdiving Federation about a Danish underwater photographer, and lucky for me my name came up!
With me as my Buddy/Model I had my friend Thomas Ravn, who was a great help during the competition! :-) 

I didn't finish in the top, but I had heaps of fun and learned a lot!!!
It was a splash-in competition with six categories spread over just four dives.

-fauna
-environment
-environment with model
-open topic
-mediterranean wrasse
-macro


The six first photos in the folder are my competition entries.
 The rest are shots that I had to deselect. And some of them are just the shots taken up to the ones I chose for the competition.

Equipment used: Nikon D300. Sea&Sea housing. Twin YS110a strobes. Lenses: Tokina 10-17mm FE & Nikon 105mm macro. Extras: SubSee +10 dioptre
