OK, here we go...

Submissions closed! We have 8 Mama Africa representations in this round. Wink

Let's move on to the 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: August 14th (Saturday)

#01. deborah_claro


#02. Alex Kawazaki


#03. Dusko


#04. Fishlova


#05. nikelodeon79


#06. Mazil


#07. Marcos Avila


#08. J.B.


Good luck to all! Smile

OK, let's vote on this nice African line-up!

1. #02 - Alex Kawazaki - who can resist a mudskipper? I can't, especially when it's as engaging as this one.
2. #03 - Dusko - what a beautiful puffer! The expression on his face is priceless!
3. #04 - Fishlova - love the electric yellows all peeking out of their pots! A subtle shot, easy to pass up but definitely worth the second look.Very Happy

#02 - Alex Kawazaki - The clarity of that shot is breathtaking. I feel like I could reach out and touch the little guy. And fish don't get much cuter than mudskippers, with their little eyes... Smile

#01 - deborah_claro - Beautiful tank. Looks like a little piece of an underwater jungle.

#06 - Mazil - His blue is so vibrant and capturing. He's a lovely fish. Smile

Honorable mention:
#03 - Dusko - I switched back and forth between you and Mazil several times for third place. In my opinion... its a tie. You make a puffer look good. Wink

#3 Dusko, wins first place, the background is blurred to perfection, the fish is active and interesting, the bubbles at the back create suspense, the lighting is cool

#1
Its very Jungle like too bad no fishes are present otherwise its a bit too blurry

#7 I love seeing a tank full of happy africans! lol



Alex's pic is too close and boring, its scary actually the mudskipper is going to jump at me!
