It depends on the competition, but mating madarinfish, in general, are unlikely to do well in competitions these days because everyone has seen them before.

 

Nice shots, though.

The first shot

 

It has a less cluttered/busy background

There are no areas lost in shadow (especially the front fish)

you can see both fishes eyes

the composition is stronger

( IMHO! )

 

It would really benefit from a little less exposure, or application of a different curve in PS, so the colours of the fish are a little less washed out and really pop :P

 

nice stuff :angry:

Auto levels - it doesn't always work, but interesting to see

There is not a lot of detail left in a 30K jpeg, so I'm sure you could get better with the originals :angry:
