*First Place November:* Jeffrey de Guzman, 39, construction worker, Quezon City, Philippines “I was on a night dive in Anilao, Batangas, when I saw this beautiful shrimp on top of coral. Shrimp are naturally shy, so I had to approach slowly. It took 30 minutes for me to get this close—this image is uncropped. I was shocked by the tiny hairs on the shrimp’s head when I saw the photo on my laptop—you can’t see that with your eyes.” *Tech specs:* Nikon D300, 105mm f/2.8G VR lens with SubSee Magnifier diopter, Inon underwater strobes, and Sea&Sea; MDX-D300 housing. Exposure, 1/200 sec at f/4.5, ISO 200.Jeffrey De Guzman
