The month is ending, but it's still January!


Themepic by Erivaldo Casado - Hyphessobrycon rosaceus fighting dominance

Excitement
Photos registering animals in a moment of excitement. A male courting a female; animals fighting dominance, facing a rival, a predator, an attacker or merely showing off the aquarium... Animals with fins / body bristling and color intensified, gaping mouths or gills

The same theme of Brazilian contest this month...

Reminder: The photo must be yours, but the photographed subject doesn't need to be.

Deadline for entries: February 19th. (Saturday)

Be sure to read the 2010 Monthly Photo Contest Rules carefully before posting your photo! By posting here you are automatically agreeing to them.

On with the contest...good luck! Very Happy

Submissions closed! We have six photos in this round. Wink

Let's move on to the TWO WEEK voting phase.
All board members can vote, but remember...to make a valid vote you must choose your 3 favorite candidates from the selection below and clearly list them in order of preference!

Although the selection criteria are ultimately personal, we hope that each voter will take into consideration the 3 basic elements of good photography:
adequacy to the proposed theme, attentive composition and technical quality.

We also encourage everyone to add comments justifying your choices, and including praises or constructive criticism to those that weren't chosen.

Participants cannot vote for their own photo, but are expected to vote and add comments for the "other" good photos! All in the name of friendship and fun!

Voting Deadline: March 5th (Saturday)

#01. susankatomerit


#02. Marcos Avila


#03. UncleWillie


#04. Frog


#05. Alex Kawazaki


#06. MackEmmons


Good luck to all! Smile
