August 2010 Monthly Photo Contest Winners Announced
By Matt J. Weiss, September 29, 2010 @ 01:37 AM (EST)

Winning images for August's underwater photo contest have been selected.

 The winner of the mating and spawning themed contest and a new Ikelite DS51 Strobe courtesy of Ikelite is Rand McMeins who caught the magic moment between two fish perfectly. In second  place was Tobias Friedrich, who now is a two time winner after taking home third place last month,  with a unique split shot.  Third place went to  David Henshaw for his captivating sea horse mating image.

I was quite impressed to see such amazing images given how hard the theme was. Not only do you need to be in the right place at the right time, but you also need to capture the moment perfect -- which each of our winners did. 

A big thank you to Ikelite, who sponsored both our July and August contests!


1st place- Rand Mcmeins
2nd Place - Tobias Friedrich
3rd Place - David Henshaw
