wow, nice shot!
Nice composition! I would have preferred to see a tad bigger depth of field (f/stop or 2) to get the foreground of the polyp in focus, but it is still a fantastic shot, my favorite so far!
Thanks! I totally hear you toad but my camera settings are tweaked to the max heh heh(coolpix 2500). Not many functions. Any suggestions on getting better pics outta this camera would be greatly appreciated. I need a new one though.

If you were at your cameras max aperture, the other way to increase your depth of field is to back off the subject a little bit; it may only take an inch or two. After you get the shot with a depth of field you like then you can crop it to size post-processing. You will obviously loose a bit of image in the crop for printing, but for the web it isn’t a big deal. You have a great sense of composition on this shot, still my favorite
Thanks, I will definatley try that as well as take larger photos(I have been taking them at 640x480)and work on cropping. Cool Thanks.

Wow, I like that composition! The green with red is a great contrast. Plus you give those usual ugly Protopalythoa polyps something to be proud about!

Not that it much matters but you got my vote, best shot up this month is yours

Thanks! That means a lot coming from somone with your photo skills.
How do you choose a photo for these contests anyways??? You have so many incredible shots to choose from on you site.

Thanks You should be proud of that shot; it deserves way more than one vote. Contests like these that are "for fun" in nature I treat as such. I typically post shots that I think are unique or original in some way or another, not necessarily my favorite or my best. I'm not particularly concerned with winning, rather gathering data from what people like and don't like.
