Manatee Love

Judged by Saeed Rashid.

"Great eye contact and cracking skin texture make this black & white manatee shot really stand out from the screen. I like the subject shot like this with a clear space on the right of the frame for the subject to move in to. For me, I would have added a little more contrast in the conversion but that’s personal taste."

15mm Sigma fisheye lens @ 1/400 secs. f/7.1 ISO 200.

Location: Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River, Florida
