I had great difficulty tryin to select one of my best fish photos, so I chose one of my favourites from my recent trip to the Great Barrier Reef.



We encountered this fish on our drift dive on the Western shores of Lady Elliot Island. It was amazing to watch just how efficient this predetorial Trevelly had become . It was able to move swiftly against the strong current due to its streamlined body shape and powerfull caudal fin. I was only able to snap this one photo before it disappeared off into the blue. The particular thing the I like about this photo is the positioning of the Trevelly in the frame with the coral in the foreground and the blueness of the ocean surrounding the fish, but I also like the memories it brings. Memories of a great and fun holiday...

Submissions closed! We have 21 submissions for this final round! 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: December 17th (Monday)

Wow so many great entries this time around.

My picks are

1 - #11 J.B. - Love how this little guy is peeking over the plant.

2- #05 Dennis Quaresma - Absolutely gorgeous fish and photo, it's professional quality. Great capture.

3- 09 Marcos- I love the candid shot here. All the loaches piled up and the one facing the opposite way really made this photo great. You are right all the big guys gathered together! Terrific shot.

1st #01 - This shot looks like it belongs in a magazine. And the color on the fish is beautiful!

2nd #05 - This is simply a beautiful shot of a gorgeous fish. I love the position of the fish, as well.

3rd #06 - While the picture may not be the most "technical" it just spoke to me. Maybe because I'm a parent, but I loved the picture of the little boy talking to the Betta. I also liked the story that went with it.

Wonderful pictures as always, guys. Good luck.
