    Default Luscious Reds - October Photo Contest - sponsored by Kees Aquarium


    October's Photo of the Month topic is "Luscious Reds". Going with the Halloween theme this month ...lets see some pics of your (blood) reds. Anything red in your saltwater tank qualifies as a subject.

    Post your best shots and win a $50 gift certificate to Kees Aquarium.

    POTM rules are as follows:

    1. You can enter only ONE photo
    2. The submitted photo should be at least 640x480 resolution.
    3. Your photo entries MUST be uploaded in your User Album.
    4. You must post the image here in this thread, but you can host the image on any server. It was noted last month that quality may less on the images hosted in the albums. It's up to you...
    5. The contest will close on the last day of the month.
    6. The winner will be chosen by CR Staff or designated judges.
    7. The winning photo will be featured on the CaptiveReefs' homepage next month.
    8. Submitting a photo entry is acknowledgment that it may be modified and used for future site graphics on CR (header area, etc.)...with credit given to the owner.
    9. Please retain higher resolution versions of your photos. We may need a higher resolution shot to make them work with the site graphics after the contest.

    No code has to be inserted here.

    Thank you for the option of using an alternate image server. Also I noticed last time that the directions say atleast 640x480 when CR albums limit to 600px. Should be an interesting one.

    Thanks, they're 800 px.

    Although I'm not 100% sure, I think if your image uploaded is right size already (<800 px wide and tall) that GD2+, the server side image processor that we decided was responsible for lowering photo quality, will leave them alone. If someone wants to test this and let me know, it would be good info.
