The National Press Photographers Association 'Best of Photojournalism' annual photo competition is one of the biggest for photojournalists in the US. I just learned that I have won second place in the category 'Natural Environment' with an underwater photo I took in Bonaire. I realize that my photo may not turn any heads on this forum, but press photographers seldom shoot underwater. In any case, I am very proud of it, and invite everyone to check it out at the following link:

Yipee!
