    January photo comp- Clowns hosting and annenome's

    Ok guys,
    here is the open thread to post pics for the January photo comp. I have changed the theme slightly so that we can include pics of clowns hosting in all the strange corals which they use as well as in nennies, and also of nennies themeslves. this includes all annenomies (sand, tube and true nennies!!!)

    Use this thread to post your pics, and the forum can chat and discuss them, perhaps give additional pointers that can improve the pic. Then use the STICKY thread for your top three submissions. NOTE ONLY THREE PICS WILL BE ACCEPTED PER MONTH AND THAT WILL BE YOUR FIRST THREE SUBMISSIONS INTO THE STICKY THREAD. choose them carefully!

    Okey, great idea guys... :thumbup:

    Just a question:

    Will the winners be anounce monthly? Why I am asking is, if I submit a pic now (wild card) and I don't win this month, can I submit it next month again as it might now be a theme?

    Viper can we split two threads here. Its early doors and if a member submits three entries thats what we will accept from that member and that will limit their chances throughout the month, but we dont want all entries comming in between the 20-25th and we have a massive job judging!

    So can we start a 'non sticky' thread where people can put in their applications, open for crit and discussion, sugestions on how to maybe improve the shot (retake or post shot editting) and one 'sticky' thread that has the actual entries in it.

    that sticky thread is a 'SERIOOOOOOOUS' thread and once three photos are entered by a member thats the three for the month?

    the non sticky we can post openly and lots and its up to the member to submit the three they want?

    absolutley jaco, you can resubmit as you like. the wild card is there as the themes we choose will not be to every ones liking (silly to theme clown triggers for eaxample when few people have one to photograph!) but if you get a brilliant pic of a clown trigger then the wild card could well win it:)

    hmmm nice shot warr, especially to see two species of clown, a nennie and a porceline crab, but its lacking in colour and focus a little. It looks like its at the side of your tank and that you arent quite square onto the subject can you try take a similar pics again, with those three as possible subjects I am sure you can get a belter of a pic.

    try open the app (low F stop) so you have lots of light and a flat depth of field, and maybe turn of some internal flow.

    beautiful colours there :) can you try a crop and remove the fish on top and some of the 'splatter' on the right hand side, might help the image alot. was that with flash on?

    great pic, maybe try one with the clown out and facing the camera, youve got great colours to work with there :)
