    mobile marine fish photos - Mobile Fish Photo Contest - sponsored by Air, Water & Ice

    Smart phones and tablets are more the rage than ever. The quality of photos they take improve which each generation and since we had a lot of fun with this before, I thought we could put our new handheld gadgets to the test again. To increase the challenge, this month only photos of fish can be submitted!

    Use your mobile phone or device (pda, iTouch, etc.) to photograph a fish (or fishes) and post it to this thread.

    Note that you must keep your original photo. If you are selected as one of the semifinalists, I will request that you forward the pic to me so I can view the Exif data (the information encoded in the photo from the camera) to verify the photo was indeed taken with a phone or other handheld.

    The easiest way to post your photo is to upload it (attach to post) when you post your reply. You can also use photobucket right from your phone if you have the photobucket app. Here is a post with tips on posting photos from your phone: http://www.captivereefs.com/forum/si...t-phone-19234/


    This month's prize is a $50 gift certificate provided by Air, Water & Ice. Please note that the winner will be responsible for shipping expenses.


    In addition, the winner will have a golden camera award placed in his or her postbit and will be featured on the CR. The winner will also serve as a judge for the next two photo contests.

    The last day to submit photos is January 31, 2012.

    Information
    Rules

    1. You can enter two photos.
    2. The photo must be your own.
    3. Try to submit a photo that is at least 640x480 resolution. **
    4. The previous two (2) POTM winners are ineligible to win.
    5. You must retain the original photo with the exif data intact.

    *Submitting a photo entry is acknowledgment that it may be modified and used for future site graphics on CR with credit given to the owner.
    **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.

    Selection of the Winning Photo

    The semi-finalists will be selected by jimsflies and the previous two POTM winners. Semi-finalists will then be posted for the general membership to vote on their favorite. In the event of a tie, the tied entries will be reposted for a tie breaking vote with the general membership. Should we receive 10 or less entries, the judging panel will decide the winner. Photos will be judged on topic, composition, and quality.

    Yes...that's correct. I figured I would make it a little easier to enter this month.

    Why only fish?
    I kid, I love fish just as much as coral. The problem is getting them to sit still...

    Don is setting the bar pretty high with the first entry.

    (Also good idea shooting one of the slower fish in the tank!)
