I'm calling them clown fish whether they are or not. I really like this. The stark white, without apparent blow, agsint their gold and orange hues out lined in black make them very interesting to veiw . Sort of wish there was a wee bit more green in the background but the image is so well shot I'll just let that pass. Very well done.

Very cool shot. Great lighting and awesome detail. On a side note, whenever I see these clownfish now, I can't help but think about the movie 'Finding Nemo' . Cute movie :-) Did you shoot this in an aquarium? I have tried on mine, but not had good results yet. Or was this underwater (diving)? Either way, very good, I see more shots like this that are not good than are. Nice job.

This photo is nice and all, but it looks like it is around the wrong way or something. Iwould try a 90 degree counter clockwise rotation to give it the perfect balance.

Spelling police here: That would be RENDEZVOUS

I think the border would have served you better if it were only black. I'd like to see the fish face to face, but that's pretty hard to stage a fish shot now isn't it?

Isn't nature grand, and love the romance in this image. I hope it does well in the reating as I love it, well done.

6 - Good capture, good colors. Criticism; can't tell if this is 'as is' or should be rotated, given their positions, could be either. Knowing the size of these fish, and how difficult aquarium shots are, seems you have done well. The colors are strong but do seem a bit 'dark', from what I know of these fish, but apologies if they are naturally this dark. Difficult, but also even more sharpness on the fish, as is on the coral just behind them, would have made this even better in my opinion. Not sure on the frame, especially the orange inner.

Check your spelling in the title. 8( I'd get rid of the orange border.
