By Joseph Tepper, January 14, 2013 @ 05:24 PM (EST)

For the November monthly contest we took a break from marine underwater photography and entered the glamorous world of fashion.

And today, DPG is very proud to announce the winners of our November Monthly Photo Contest. The theme for the month was “Fashion” and the winner of a free subscription to Scuba Diver-Through the Lens magazine is Nicholas Samaras.

Nicholas captured the judges’ votes with is strikingly simple image of a model against a black background. The judges were impressed by the simplicity, color and tone of the image.

First Place- Nicholas Samaras

Second place went toJean-Luc Truijens for a beautifully composed image of a mirror reflection titled “Narcissus.” George Rigoutsos nabbed third place with his shot of a model in a red dress swimming through a stunning sun ball.
