I visited oom Bert polling towards the end of last year. He is the owner of Limpopo fish farm in Pietersburg South Africa. His son showed us some of the rift lake cichlids that they were breeding outside in large concrete containers.

This one did not like being taken out of the water:

Submissions closed! We have 26 submissions for this very tough challenge! Let's move on to the 1 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: October 1st (Monday)

Terrific entires this time. This was tough one!

I vote for:

1- #25 - Marcos, absolutely stunning shot of this ray. He looks so happy playing in the bubbles. Nice work catching this!

2- #13 - Ceci, I love the way this betta looks like it's swirling! Beautiful action capture.

3 - #3 - Jacko, this fish looks like he's been turning so fast he's bend in half! Wonderful action shot.

Very nice photos everyone, it was hard to participate, and even harder to pick my favorites!

My turn Very Happy

Very tough this time round too Smile I liked a lot, but have chosen the ones I feel really captured the movement

1: 05 - Lindak - I really this shot, it looks almost like a watercolour

2: 15 - Misprint - It was a nice idea to have a picture of something that wasn't alive, and again the movement was captured well

3: 25 - Marcos Avila - Makes me want to join in!

It was a very close call with a lot of them, well done everyone
