Merit Prize: Sheila Pressman

Olympus Camedia C-770 digital camera and a copy of the National Geographic Photography Field Guide.

Sheila Pressman, a research scientist who lives in California, took this photo on a rare cloudless day in Neko Harbor, Antarctica. "I had my camera out, ready to shoot when one penguin stopped beside the whale bones and posed for me," says Pressman. "The sun created an intensity of color, and the penguin added a touch of whimsy, which were both irresistible." (Canon PowerShot G5 digital, built-in 7.2-28.8mm zoom lens.)
