First Place: Marine Animal Portrait

Pictures of whales in the open ocean "often take my breath away, because I realize what an incredible encounter that must have been—to be that close to a juvenile sperm whale [pictured], which, by the way, probably has a watchful mother nearly," Schmale said.

In this image captured near the Caribbean island of Dominica, "you see the dappled sunlight on the whale's nose—the whole feeling of that photo conveys just an incredibly dramatic scene."

(See pictures: "Best Aquatic Views From 2009 Contest.")
