353rd Show & Tell Competition: Fish and sea life - WINNER

Post Thu Mar 12, 2015 7:36 pm


Winner: Arnie Peterschmidt
There were several images I really liked, but this one stands out.
It has a painting quality to it with nice pastel color. The slight blurriness and the bubble streaks really convey a sense of being underwater in the habitat of these salmon. I also like the dynamic feel of motion.

2nd place:
Very close (I went back and forth about who the winner should be: Terry Browker
This B&W image has already won a photographic competition. It has a graphic feel to it; reminded me of Japanese art for some reason. The halftones are beautifully chosen and the bokeh enhances the main subject.

3rd place: I struggled with that one too and settled on
by Allen Hart.
The captured scene is very unusual and intriguing. It is a photo that tells an interesting story. The post processing could be better with a straight horizon and a bit more contrast, but I liked it nonetheless.

Honorable mentions in no partiuclar order:

by Greybeard. I like the crispness of the image and nice juxtaposition of the two cuttlefish.

by Suzanne Mathia. I liked the way these tentacles were framed to create this elegant red "S" through the image.

by Walter Koenig Beautiful capture of this earthly alien. Crisp, great colors and detail.

Thank you Markus for the win and thoughtful comments. I enjoyed this competition and spent quite a bit of time viewing all of the entries in this competition. I will post a new theme as soon as I can find a little inspiration.
