I am entering a local uw-photocontest, and I am having a hard time choosing a photo for the macro category.
Witch of these should I choose,........ if any, and why ?
All are shot with a D90 in Hugyfot, with a 105 mm macro
Hope to get some feedback.

Hi Steen,

I would go for #1- it was the one that kept my eye on the image for longest.

Good luck, Morten

I would go with the first one Steen..although i like the second one the tunicate takes your eye off the fish....if the photo was like the cropped one attached then it may have worked

The third one has a blurry patch up front which again distracts the eye

Good luck with the contest

Cheers,

Diggy

I like number 3 it has personality the eyes are sharp and that's where the viewer is drawn to.

Cheers

Alex

Always a tough choice. I like the second one and I like the tunicate in the pic. Of the three, the first draws me to it the least.

Good luck - DiverPam

I'd say number 1. Was the first picture to attract my eyes once i entered the thread. Love the composition done and i really love that the eyes and face(?) of the shrimp just pops out

Id go with 2 but crop out the top of the image with the black distraction in the center-top- take it to a 4x5 format and I think you'll like the results- #1 would be a close second with a little more exposure added to brighten up the subject a bit
