Thank you to all the photographers that shared their best photos shot under piers in the View Under The Pier Photo Contest with chances to win a Focus Shifter and more!

A special thanks to our friend and professional photographer Michiel Pieters for his collaboration as a guest judge in this photo contest. Michiel is a 26 year old, self taught freelance photographer based in Beringen, Belgium. He discovered his love for outdoor photography while on a road trip through New Zealand in the beginning of 2015. His work nowadays focuses mainly on the feeling he got being on the road for the very first time: Adventure. To offer a documentation of his travels on a constant basis, he uses different media platforms such as Instagram and 500px. Where with a combined following of approximately 300,000 he quickly became one of Belgium's biggest (outdoor) influencers.

Grand Jury Winner

"The thing i like about this photo is the way how the shadows really lead you into it. They work really well as a leading line." - Michiel Pieters

Runner Up

"I love this one because he stretched the theme. It’s under a pier, but there’s so much going on with all the wildlife. It’s how imagine it when i’m sitting on a pier, and all the fish come out beneath it. Great photo." - Michiel Pieters

Runner Up

"I love the colors and the subject in this. The pier leads your eye to the watchtower (or lighthouse?). And the composition is really nice." - Michiel Pieters
