Submissions closed! We have 9 submissions for this month. 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: November 7th (Wednesday)
#01. DF Bobo
#03. Bolivian Ramage
#05. FISH FANCY
#06. Gabriel Jaya
#08. Marcos Avila
Good luck to all! _________________

#1. 02 Dusko - What an excellent, clean bright space! The aquarium is a subtle alternative of what to look at when the view from that wonderful window gets too old. I love the way the aquarium looks in this room!
#2. 08 Marcos - This is a great room: those great old sofas, the fireplace wall, the high ceiling. I like the way the aquarium is big enough to be seen from the sitting position, but not so close that it distracts from conversation. From the aquarium, the eye is led to the photos of the three kids on the wall to the left. Marcos, is the top one you?
#3. 04 Minsc - Nice sunny window, nice plants, nice bed, and a great vantage point from which to view that lovely aquarium.
Well, someone has to say it and I guess it might as well be me.
The following photos:
01 DF Bobo,
03 Bolivian Ramage,
were good photos of well-cared for aquariums. However, in my opinion, they did not fit the theme and, therefore, I could not vote for any of them.
None of these photos showed the aquarium as part of a room. I could not tell anything about the placement of the aquarium in relationship to the rest of the room's furnishings.
I hope I am not out of place with this observation, but adhering to the theme is what it's all about.
