The results of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science's Underwater Photography Contest were announced and a ghostly photo of a seal swimming in a kelp forest taken by Kyle McBurnie was the overall winner of the contest.

The contest for amateur photographers received 700 entries this year in the categories of macro, wide angle, fish or marine animal portrait, and student work. The contest is open to anyone who earns less than 20 percent of their income from photography.

Other winners this year included photographs of a greater blue-ringed octopus, an anemone shrimp, a goliath grouper, a dusky jawfish, and red emperor shrimp.
