The far right pic: That (in my opinion) would be fantastic if the diver on the right of the wreck was not there.!!! I know its good for sense of scale but...?

We can see the photo of the winner, a Swedish photographer: Goran Ehlmé and one more couple of submarine Spanish photographers who have obtained second prizes. So much in the winning photo, like in that of Manu San Félix, we can see the exclusive use of natural light. Also it is this light the predominant in Jordi Chias's photo.
PD: Michael Aw has been rewarded also (congratulations) and the best photo of portrait has been elected a great barracuda, but these photos are not in the gallery.

The artistic question about ambient light I think is a moot point. Artistically a photo is about form, about texture, about what ever presents itself, whether that is with artifical light or not is ot the question. Anyone who concerns themselves with light source is not looking to the artistic intent of a photo.

Now the results are out - it seems the vital ingredient is a 12-24mm lens on a Nikon camera. All 4 category winning underwater shots used this combination!
