Welcome to the Reef2Reef POTM Contest - Photo of the Month

Sponsored by Avast Marine!

This month's subject - Donuts

Deadline to Enter: 31st May, 2021 at 11:59 pm (EST)

Looking forward to great shots of Donuts! Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the subject has to be in your aquarium.
No watermarks or captions are allowed in the pictures and pictures with watermarks will be disqualified.
A bit of info around your subject like how long you had it, feeding, supplements, lighting and flow it's under...


This is a photo contest after all and we're looking for the best photograph. Yes, you can use a post-editing product to better your pictures. In fact, we encourage it.
Few tips:
- experiment with different views: top down or front views.
-Play with DOF by minimizing or maximizing aperture for different looks.
-Try to take multiple pictures and make sure to catch any fish formations around the food at moment it hits the water or possibly fish lining up to feed or pulling at same piece of food....


As always refer to the multiple photography articles or post any questions you might have on the photography forum for better support. Maybe also post a few pictures for suggestions and critique to improve your shots wile preparing for this months contest as well.
