Congrats Alex! You are the first 3rd prize mentioned.

And I believe David Harasti is also a member and in the 3rd prize category.

Congrats Alex!

I would have picked Alex's shot and the one with the sunburst over the first and second prize winners. Getting two lined up like first prize winner is great but to me it looks so obvious that the poor critters were really bothered by the camera that it made the photo not very pleasing.

everyone knows i am friends with alex ... but i also tell it how it is ...

... it's a shame how the results came out in this competition ... i dont like seeing the same style photos i have seen before wining competitions .. get some new judges. Not saying Alex's should have won ... but boring selection in general. (maybe i am just jealous i dont get to see too many seahorses)

Thanks guys. I have only just seen this thread.

Despite this news coming in rather a good week for me, with much more important wins, I am actually very chuffed. I reckon it is a pretty good effort to have the best pink H. bargibanti image in a competition like this. There must have been a lot of pink bargibantis in the mix.

I really like Dave's shot.

p.s. hey I have just been 2 the webpage and my picture has been rotated!
