DPG Announces Winners of November Monthly Photo Contest
By Joseph Tepper, December 7, 2011 @ 07:26 PM (EST)

DPG is very proud to announce the winners of our November Monthly Photo Contest!  The theme for the month was “Cold Water” and the winner of the $150 cash prize is Allison Vitsky!

Allison’s striking image of a gapping sea lion captured the judge’s attention, and a slight motion blur gave the image more of an action feel.

Second place went to DPG contest regular Thomas Heckmann for a technically flawless wide-angle image taken in cold water. Richard Wylie took home third place with the silhouette of a leafy sea dragon. 

Second Place- Thomas Heckmann
Third Place- Richard Wylie

Again, we would like to thank our judges who spend hours sifting through hundreds of images for each contest- DPG editors Matt Weiss and Joe Tepper, and contest champions Keri Wilk, Mark Fuller, Steve de Neef and Jeff De Guzman. 

Thanks again for tons of “cool” images in the Cold Water contest. Make sure to enter our December contest—the theme is “Creative Editing” and the prize is a copy of Doug Sloss’ “Photoshop for the Underwater Photographer” DVD.
