Should be somebody real to accept the money if you rank high enough )
Stan, those tanks are some of my favorite....all time! Amazing work, stunning... i can't say enough.
although i like your mom's better the depth achieved is ridiculous! the lighting effect in the photo was such a great touch.
he is really good.....stunning tanks no wonder his name is stanroud:
i am just a little confused with the title frog mountain III
the image of the main rock appeared to be the head of a turtle)
:13:Holy crap, it is a turtle!

Wow- Awesome scaping. Dave's & 14 look HDR'ed LOL! The top is darker than the bottom in 14.:%3.
Ed, Juri & Mac - look, its a frog dammit! [-X LOL! A mean looking one like Gamabunta 8) Leaner version! Bwahaha!
haha too funny, the stone really looks like Gamabunta )
:-SSI will not argue with such a mean looking frog...Gamabunta in his youth. FROG mountain it is. never a doubt....
what is HDR'ed? high def rendering?
HDR = High dynamic range. Combine couple of photos with different exposure
I thing, it is just the way the rock slanted or maybe flash placement.
Robert- could be- but something suppose to be white becoming greyish is quite surprising.
In Dave's picture you can see halo'ing near the branches & fishes. Could also be due to over unsharp masking or him trying to darken the bg after shooting it.
Not a big deal IMHO but if they're doing it-they should be more careful to make it less obvious to a trained eye.
Not like compositing stuff in.[-X
nr 14 is a very deep tank or the guy used a wide angel lens - tank looks super deep, love the effect!
photos 1 & 2 are like octopusy style and
nice colored plants for 3rd photo.
congrats all tanks are winner:=D>
14 I read somewhere is made by Dave for his brother. So cool to have a brother like Dave!
I think having a deep tank means it's harder to light. Looks like he encountered some problems.
I find it funny when my friend's clients say they have a professional photographer help them shoot their tank and I see the result is quite bad. I think most pros know how to shoot the aquarium as a product but they need time to understand how to shoot it's contents well. ))
Aquatic photography is different from regular.
If tank is HDRed how is all the ghosting removed? More photoshop?

There's many way but the easiest is to start over.[I'm no HDR expert]- on that note-assuming it was shot in RAW and there's some highlight detail to make two jpegs to combine- expose one for highlight & one for midtone to shadow.
It has to be carefully tone mapped to create smooth gradations.
One can further manipulate it by levels layers with some fairly tedious masking. Depending on your skill level, it's possible to look realistic and un PS'ed. [heavily]
I don't consider this cheating-just doing what the eye sees and where camera fails or one is not rich enough to have his own strobist kit or even space to maneuver.
In photography, the digital darkroom has replaced the old one. There's really no looking back although I did enjoy mucking around during my Art College years.
