 Ready  to  judge.  I've  been  keeping  track  of  the  entries  and  there  have  been  so  many  beautiful  photos  so  far.  It'll  be  a  tough  competition,  I  can  say  that  much.

 Yep  ,  I  too  am  more  than  satisfied  with  the  amount  of  participation.  Some  of  the  pictures  started  showing  true  colors(the  way  camera  took  them)  when  I  opened  them  on  photoshop.  Its  not  visible  on  the  web.  That  is  little  bit  sad  part,  as  its  more  to  do  with  educating  guys  on  how  to  post  photographs  on  web  rather  than  rejecting  it  as  a  bad  photograph.  I  have  written  a  tutorial  on  that,  which  I  intend  to  publish  it  after  this  competition  is  over,  as  I  have  used  one  of  the  competitions  photograph  in  the  tutorial  to  demonstrate  how  it  could  have  been  improved.  Going  forward  we  will  see  more  and  more  beautiful  photographs  in  the  IAH  galleryas  well  as  the  competitions.
 
 Regards

 Hello  Elaine,
 My  feeling  is  that  a  macro  lens  is  important  for  getting  good,  focused  images  of  fish,  particularly  if  they  are  small  and  you  need  to  get  in  close.
 Canon  do  a  dedicated  macro  lens  for  the  350D  (Canon  EF-S  60mm  f/2.8  Macro  USM  Lens,  but  the  minimum  focusing  distance  is  still  20  cm).
 
 The  closest  focusing  distance  with  the  standard  lens  that  Canon  supply  is  probably  28  cm  or  more.    So  if  your  camera  is  closer  than  28  cm  to  the  fish,  that  image  is  always  going  to  be  out  of  focus.    You  need  to  stand  further  back  for  the  photo  to  be  in  focus.
 
 With  my  Fuji  S7000,  where  the  minimum  focusing  distance  in  normal  macro  is  just  10  cm,  I  always  use  the  camera  in  autofucus  mode.
 If  the  image  is  out  of  focus,  the  camera  warns  me.    
 I  am  sure  that  the  Canon  has  a  similar  facility.
 
 Hope  that  you  find  this  helpful.    Please  let  me  know.
 
 All  the  best,
 Iggy

 Infact  I  have  the  results  with  me  -  I  was  making  the  final  score-card  the  whole  evening!
 I'll  have  to  fulfill  a  final  formality  of  confirmation  of  results  with  Sandeep  -  after  Sandeep  confirms  all  the  marks  to  be  correct  -  I'll  declare  the  results  tomorrow!
 The  results  are  really  interesting..................indeed  a  close  finish!
 every  photo  was  evaluated  for  60  marks  (10  marks  for  each  judge)
 MORE  TOMORROW.......................................................................
