can you tone down the background a little or is that not allowed?

Regarding the cow fish - nice shot head on, after reading Mikes comment, I just did a very slight edge darkening by adding a vignette, just subtle......

What tips the balance for me? Color and composition. The trunk fish image is cool, but aside from the fish, the background is a bit bland. Every element of the Anemone Fish shot works for me ... nice composition, focus, DOF, great colors, interesting but not distracting background ...
... ok ... wasn't as close as I thought ... I vote for the Anemone Fish with the Trunk Fish a distant second ...

Thanks for the compliment.
Anyway, here are my final picks for Nature: 3 uw and 1 topside for the landlubber judge.
I decided to enter the trunk fish in pictorial because I like the radial filter.
