Mr O’Shea, who specialises in images of the coastline around Byron Shire described his image Dolphin and kayaker sharing a wave at Byron Bay as ‘a happy dolphin riding the waves with John Clemment in his own handmade kayak at Wategos Beach.’

His second entry depicts three surfers checking out a leaping dolphin nearby and is titled Smiles all round.
