Grand Prize Winner - Jamuary 2010

Taken early Christmas dawn in General Santos City, when fishermen caught this 74-kilo Moonfish, or Opah, a very expensive delicacy in some countries. In the Philippines, it is called "Diana" tuna.

I know the difficulty of reaching this place in General Santos City and much more having chanced upon a big catch and able to document it with this magnificent photo. Your efforts paid off well deserving of the Grand Prize here at BetterPhoto.

Congratulations Jojie! You have provided further encouragement and stimulus to those who aspire of earning the highest accolade from their photographs.

Best regards! - LESTER
