#05. lindak - Awsome color and a nice sense of motion

#24. shaun64326 - Excellent sense of motion and speed for the subject

#25. - Marcos Avila - Nice sense of motion but a little to out of focus to score better

There are better photos, but I didn't feel they gave a proper sense of action

Tough decision guys! A job REALLY well done to all of you!

1. #3 - Jaco. A beautiful pic. Lovers. How romantic! I love their colours too.
2. #9 - underOATH87. I liked this pic as it says so much about their parenting skills and breeding behaviours.
3. #22 - Aberdufi. I nearly picked #21 but I liked the colours of yours a tini-weeny-bit more. Sorry ACosterus!!! Confused

Good luck everyone!

My votes!:

#1: #5 Lindak: Love the movement in this shot, almost as if it's moving! Smile Fantastic technique how you captured the Betta in motion, did you use a compact or an SLR.

#2: #26 Michael: The Clownfishes movement in this shot is lovely, almost as if there is three shots in one. I especially like how the fish is focused at the end, after all the movement.

#3: #25 Marcos Avila: The clarity and colour of this picture is just awesome. The blue really stands out in this picture. Loving it! Very Happy

Good luck to everyone! Very Happy

Blair

Wow, this really was a tricky theme. We can see why from the great collection of entries: if you emphasize your choice on the technical quality too much you don't get too much sense of movement, and if you emphasize the movement aspect you tend to lose in technical quality. Getting just the right balance (as in the theme pic, IMO) is really hard! Anyway, my choices are:

1) #03. Jacko - one of the best "embrace" photos I've seen, and the little joke bonus made me laugh Laughing

2) #10. Heather R - Interesting how the sense of movement here comes from the "business" of the cichlid population.

3) #22. aberdufi - I'm just amazed at the sharpness of the image around the betta's tail, it almost seems made of wax Shocked

ONLY 4 MORE HOURS TO VOTE! Smile
