Nationality: Germany
Image caption: Wreck of the Chrisoula K.
Country taken: Egypt
Location: Abu Nuhas
Camera make: Canon1DX MKII
Lens: Canon 8-15mm Fisheye
ISO: 200
Aperture: f/8
Shutter: 1/125

Because the bow sections of the Chrisoula K wreck in the Red Sea is too big to be taken in one image, my idea was to create a panoramic view from multiple images and merge them together to one big panorama to get a nice view of the whole wreck from that perspective.

Judge’s comments:

Once again Tobias you have succeeded in capturing one of the most photographed wrecks in the Red Sea and photographing it in a completely different way. You push the boundaries of wreck photography and I congratulate you for your vision and forward thinking of new ideas.
