For professional wildlife photographers and panel judges Steve and Ann Toon, the secret to the success of Robins’ portfolio was his ability to give the viewer a peak at the turtle’s underwater world. “Although we’re totally immersed in the sea in these images, along with the turtles, we never lose sight or a sense of the world above, and it’s this that adds the spark of magic,” they said.
Melbourne’s Yunis Tmeizeh captured these quirky candid street photography images on a trip to New York’s Coney Island last year. They are part of the winning portfolio in the people and portrait category.
