 The  first  thing  that  came  to  my  mind  when  i  saw  the  header  of  this  thread  is  that  "Who  is  this  guy  to  tell  that  his  tank  was  not  rated  well  due  to  his  bad  luck".  But  when  i  saw  you  tank  pic  i  really  understood  what  you  meant.
 
 I  am  sure  next  time  if  you  keep  a  better  picture  of  this  tank  at  that  time  it  might  even  get  to  the  top  10.
 I  really  like  the  details  you  have  on  the  scape

 I  personally  believe  Sreeram  is  one  of  the  best  talents  we  got  in  India  ,   really  proud  to  say  that  ;but  when  i  happened  to  see  his  previous  scapes  only  thing  lacking  is  presenting  his  work[  i  meant  photography]  ,  but  am  sure  he  must  have  realized  this  by  now...  sincerly  beleive  his  future  scapes  will  amaze  us  more

 How  many  competitions  have  you  participated  in?  I  have  participated  in  ASK  fish  competitions.  But  there  I  did  not  take  my  favorite  fish.  I  took  my  best,  Fat'est,  Healthiest  and  Biggest  fish,  so  that  I  have  a  chance  to  win!  get  my  point?
 
 Regards,                

 
 Hey  Nayak  -  my  point  of  view  -  In  India  we  still  creating  aquascapes  to  first  satisfy  ourselves  and  then  submit  it  in  competitions,  most  of  us  still  have  challenge  to  keep  multiple  aquacapes  due  to  many  reasons  and  decide  which  one  to  submit  in  IAPLC  (though  i  had  2  but  realized  its  sensible  to  spend  time,effor  and  money  on  1),  resources  and  associated  cost  being  one  of  the  challenges.  To  give  you  an  example  there  is  an  lfs  recently  opened  by  a  hobbyist  and  have  got  some  really  nice  small  sized  root  woods  however  priced  as  "per  piece"  and  not  by  weight  which  almost  all  the  lfs  retails  it....and  the  price  per  piece  is  hillarious   Thumb Down  .  i  know  its  business  but  purely  because  not  enough  competition   Smile  and  depriving  some  of  the  hobbyist....sad.
 
 cheers,
 Binesh

 I  know  I'm  way  too  late  on  this  thread,  but  just  wanted  to  record  my  view;
 
 I  agree  with  Mr.  Nayak  &  Mr.  Madan...
 
 If  you  want  to  send  entries  to  competitions,  you  must  participate  to  win.  If  you  want  to  just  show  off  your  work,  show  it  on  IAH.  But  I  wonder  how  you  show  off  with  a  bad  picture   Wall Bang  .  In  case  you  only  want  to  satisfy  yourself,  don't  get  a  camera,  get  a  comfy  lounge  chair.  Put  it  in  front  of  the  tank.  sit  back  &  satisfy  yourself  by  watching  it  no  end.
 
 What  many  others  are  saying  sounds  like;  "I  want  to  participate  in  the  olympics  100m,  just  to  satisfy  myself".  Firstly,  you  compete  to  win  (  that  is  the  literal  meaning  of  'compete').  Secondly,  you  are  disgracing  yourself  AND  your  associates  (friends,  family,  country...  whatever).  And  at  the  end  of  it  you  want  to  be  appreciated?  Surprised   That  is  just  ridiculous.  Chuckle  
 
 Primarily,  I  think  this  thread  was  started  to  gain  some  sympathy.
 
 Frankly,  I  think  you're  scape  is  a  masterpiece  (no  doubts  on  that).  But  my  point  is  that  there  is  no  point  in  whining  when  it  was  crystal  clear,  in  the  first  place,  that  those  PHOTOGRAPHS  are  not  going  to  place  you  anywhere  near  your  ambition  of  top  200.  
 and  many  people  talking  about  'only  satisfaction';  He  had  an  'ambition'.  Again,  and  this  may  sound  philosophical,  you  compete  to  WIN,  not  gain  200th  place.  That  has  been  our  (Indians')  mentality   Crying or Very sad  ...  That  is  why  we  make  heroes  of  bronze  medallists.  If  you  want  to  compete  in  an  international  competition,  IAPLC  no  less!,  you  better  be  ready  to  beat  the  hell  out  of  everyone  in  the  world.  Not  just  to  be  placed  'highest  Indian'.  If  that  is  what  you  want  to  do  compete  in  an  'All  India'  contest.
 
 Photoshop  or  no  Photoshop  is  totally  another  matter  (I  know,  because  I'm  a  professional  photographer).  By  Photoshop,  many  people  here  are  thinking,  major  corrections  &  retouching...  NO.  Any  image  has  to  be  corrected  for  colours.  The  camera  cannot  do  everything  on  its  own.  Even  when  technology  was  (so  called)  'low'  people  were  correcting  colours  and  even  retouching  to  a  certain  extent.  Digitization  has  only  'digitized'  that  process.  Now  you  use  a  computer  to  do  what  was  done  using  light  &  chemicals.  In  this  particular  case,  all  he  had  to  do  was  to  correct  colours  and  not  retouch  it  or  add  flora  or  fauna  on  Photoshop  (which  can  also  be  done,  unfortunately).
 
 But  Sreeram,  from  the  bottm  of  my  heart;  AMAZING  AQUASCAPE.   Next  time  give  me  a  call,  and  I'll  do  the  photography  for  you...  FREE  if  you  buy  me  that  fantastic  hyderabadi  biriyani  for  all  three  meals  of  the  days  that  I  spend  in  Hyderabad!!!  (  and  some  nice  booze  to  boot   Wink  
 
 Cheers!

 What  a  big  lecture  Chuckle  just  to  for  a  few  Biryanis  Crying or Very sad  
 
 But  we  learn  from  our  mistakes.  Remove  the  word  "UN"  and  let  LUCKY"  ¬†  remain.  Because  the  tank  is  not  unlucky  but  the  photograph  was  unlucky.
 
 This  is  your  lucky  tank,  it  will  win  a  prize  provided  the  judges  are  having  humility.
 
 There  are  people  from  different  walks  of  life  in  competitions.  But  their  talents  are  remarkable  and  unique.  ¬†Judges  are  those  who  have  won  best  picture  awards  themselves,  maybe  they  have  used  other's  talents.  
 
 You  have  to  be  a  good  photographer  to  take  a  good  photograph  with  an  expensive  camera.  
 
 Here  you  are  an  excellent  and  talented  Aquarium  scaper,  thats  your  talent.  
 
 Its  not  how  it  looks  its  how  you  see  Thumb Up  
 
 God  is  with  you  my  friend,  if  at  all  in  the  next  competition  the  same  tank  wins,  we  will  all  know  that  it  was  photographed  by  a  talented  photographer.  Smile
