Asian Diver (English) - - What Bubbled -

The Lem­beh Gulen Crit­ter Shootout 2016 cer­tainly gen­er­ated a so­cial me­dia buzz over the last month with over 200,000 divers check­ing out the Face­book page daily. Not only were some amaz­ing im­ages gen­er­ated un­der the guid­ance of Keri Wilk and Tobias Friedrich but this was a com­pe­ti­tion that broke ge­o­graph­i­cal bor­ders as well as so­cial ones.

Shootouts are so often a jos­tle for the best im­age op­por­tu­nity but in this case it was all about get­ting your team to the num­ber one slot be­fore in­di­vid­ual points came into ac­count. As a re­sult, the com­pet­i­tive spirit was re­placed by team spirit and pho­tog­ra­phers joined forces to put to­gether the strong­est port­fo­lio they could for their re­sort. Par­tic­i­pants got to­gether, lend­ing equip­ment, sharing tips, sac­ri­fic­ing their own im­ages for the greater good in the fi­nal line­ups, and mak­ing ev­ery ef­fort to sup­port the less-ex­pe­ri­enced mem­bers of the group. Hats off to the teams and the or­gan­is­ers for show­ing us just how loved-up an un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phy event can be!

To view some of the in­cred­i­ble im­ages that were sub­mit­ted for the fi­nal vote visit the Lem­beh Gulen Shootout Face­book page. Win­ning im­ages will also be re­vealed in the next is­sue of Scuba Diver AUS­TRALA­SIA!
