We don't have enough entrants yet to get this off the ground.

At this stage I think we should look at spending the next month getting enough entries to make this possible and have this running for the start of December

Thanks to all who have so far entered or commented above. It is appreciated.

We currently have entries from

brengun
mooo
bigbird
Derek
jimmywr

we need another 11 to get this started.
Xingu
matubula
and I will throw one in aswell, so that will leave 8 places needing filling.

It can be any fish that fits into the tropical fish category. I know that most of us have fish that fit this description, so just pull out your camera's and take a few snaps of your fish. Entry via PM or email meandbre1@hotmail.com using your username for reference.

Thanks
bre.

sorry been away on hols or would have sent something.
I suspect the high standard on prev competitions may put some people off.
maybe you should set some juudgeing criteria for eople so as to not judge on the most perfect clarity and rareity of fish, but on composition, use of colour, unusual pose or something?

That sounds good Irene not everyone has a SLR and are great at taking pictures. I just used my humble mobile phone.

I wont be entering the competition but if others think all photos need a special camera , my tank shot that won was taken using a 40 quid camera from ASDA with no special settings apart from turn off the sitting room lights and take it.

I do not even know what SLR is? Non of my photos are with a special camera. I am not up to speed with macros or other technical terms.

If I vote on a pic I normally pick it if the fish looks cute or the picture seems balanced and overall generally good. You could use a really expensive camera and have a really crap expensive picture that I wont vote for.

Firstly I would like to thank everyone that has submitted a photo for this competition.
Unfortunately we do not have the numbers to go through with running a KO.

What I would like is to have some ideas put forward as to a type of photo comp to run for December. It could be a particular species of pleco, general tropical fish, christmas theme. Anything at all, it doesn't even have to be a fish related theme.

Please reply in this thread.

Thank You
Bre.
