EPIC has posted the winners of its 2007 photo contest. Many of these winners are recognizable as Wetpixel members or individuals who have placed in other competitions this year.

Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007 Winners
Check out the winning images and videos from this year’s Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007! After a tough week of non-stop diving, classes, and evening image critique sessions, we received nearly 400 entries in 4 categories from 60 participants.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the shootout! As we like to say each year, “All of us are winners. Some are just more prize-challenged.” We’ll see you next year.
Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007 Day 6
Today is the last official day of the Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007! We had an evening awards ceremony presentation that included a topside slideshow and an underwater slideshow of all the images submitted in the photo contest, followed by a presentation of this year’s winning images. After the show, more than 20 of us ended up at Papaya Moon, a relatively new Tex-Mex restaurant in town. When I left the group, they were having a great time at Little Havana…

Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007 Day 5
Home stretch! We had a relatively light schedule today, with two boat dives in the morning, a short talk in the afternoon on how to shoot split images (by Jim Watt) and a mini-lecture on Photoshop techniques (sharpening and backscatter removal, by Berkley White). Jim, Berk and I held informal office hours for the rest of the afternoon, helping participants prepare their final image selects for submission into the photo contest.

Sea & Sea YS-250 strobe prototype photos
Jon Davy from Sea & Sea / TUSA has been hanging out with us here in Bonaire at the Digital Shootout 2007. In addition to bringing an underwater housing and strobes to give away as a contest prize, Jon brought two prototype Sea & Sea YS-250 strobes with him. Originally announced at DEMA last year, the YS-250 has been awaited eagerly by photographers because of its high power and relatively compact size. We took a couple photos of the strobes…
Digital Shootout Bonaire 2007 Day 4
We dove some really lush reefs today (and yesterday), with nearly complete gorgonian and sponge coverage. After spending so much time in the south Pacific, it is rare for me to find a reef that I’m impressed with, especially in the Caribbean. But some of the reefs here in Bonaire (especially in the far north and far south) are really healthy and host a ton of marine life…
