Wetpixel Expedition, led by Eric Cheng
... aboard M/V Bilikiki
We have just returned from a 14-day Wetpixel expedition aboard the M/V Bilikiki in the Solomon Islands. While on board, we held an informal photo contest judged by Cor Bosman, Julie Edwards, and Michele Gaut (Bilikiki manager). The five winning entries were taken by Frank Baensch, Larry Chan, and Alexis Tabah, who will all receive a free year's subscription to Wetpixel Quarterly.
I whipped up a slideshow on the last day to showcase all of the images submitted by the 19 participants, which you can see below. It includes about 110 underwater images, topside images of boat life, and entertaining final credits. Be sure to watch 'til the end to see a special treat!
