6 Amazing Over-Under Photos from our 2016 Underwater Photo Contest

Judging the "Through Your Lens" photo contest is always an exciting time of year at Scuba Diving magazine, but it can also be very tough. Each year proves more and more difficult for narrowing down the overall category winners. We absolutely love looking through your underwater images and want to highlight additional photographers that stood out. Check out the gallery below for six amazing over-under photographs that were submitted during the 2016 contest.

Enter your images in the 2017 Through Your Lens photo contest by May 31, 2017. You can enter a total of up to five images for free and the best part is, winners walk away with some pretty amazing prizes. This year there are FIVE different liveaboard trips up for grabs, courtesy of Aggressor Fleet.
