    But what the heck.... D2h shot makes catalog cover:


    Check out the little boxes on the right of the screen. Click the "Request a Catalog" box and you can download the cover (.pdf)

    Marine depot is like the B&H Photo of the marine aquarium hobby (though they don't have a retail store).

  4. Very nice work. Congrats.

    So do you keep marine aquariums? I did back in the pre reef filter days. Early to late 1980s.
  5. You now own the bragging rights to the entire forum. No question.

    Sooo embarassing.... I feel so out of place, but since everyone else was doing it, I figured I might as well.

    I dunno, it's not like a magazine cover shot or anything. They decided to do a calendar also, and it got a whole month for it (and I get credit for it there). Only made $50 off the image though, but it's the second image I've sold off my website! At this rate, the website may be self sustaining in, oh... 50 years?

    hehe... Thanks Chris.

    Yeah, but mine's really small. My display is a 100 L (29 gal) tank, and my QT is a 200 L (55 gal). I also have 3 FW tanks.

    My main display tank:

    hehe... Thanks.... It wasn't any contest or anything. I'm continually impressed with all the members hear that win all those POTD or even better those POTM, or unimaginable POTY contests.

    Nice going Greg! Beautiful shot, and well deserved. Did they request you upsize it for them? Reason for asking, is that when I got the July page (& inside cover) of a not-for-profit org's wildlife calendar, they asked that I uprez my shot, (also convert it to CMYK).
    I was so stoked about getting in the calendar, that when I was told I'd also receive a $100 prize, I told them to just send me another 10 calendars and they could keep the money! :biggrin:
  11. Congratulations I have always admired your reef photgraphy gald to see you being rewarded for it

    Way to go Gregory. We don't mind a little bragging when it's well warranted. :wink:

    You're not bragging Gregory, we are thrilled to share in your excitment. That is so cool...your image gracing the cover of a catalog. I could not be happier or more excited for you. Great job!!! :biggrin:
  14. Very cool, Gregory! I'm very familiar with that magazine. I ordered from them a lot when I had my sw tank! Congrats!!
  15. Beautiful image Gregory. That is an honor that your richly deserve as one of the best reef tank photographers I have ever known. Well done my friend.

    Thanks Gale. Wow, quite the congrats from everyone. Now if I can only find a way to make reef photography profitable I'll be all set :biggrin:

    Actually, they told me which image they wanted, and I asked what size and dpi. I then uprezzed and converted to CMYK for them, as they stated it was going to print. I keep my processed images in TIFF or PSD form so that I can keep them in 16bit aRGB mode and minimize color loss between conversions.

    I then hosted the image on my site for them to download (16bit TIFF).

    I usually do the resizes, because when other people do them, they don't sharpen afterwards and use too high a compression and the image comes out looking terrible.

    Congrats on the callendar. Did you post a thing in the forum? I mustve missed it, can you post the image for me to see?

    Hi Frank... Well, I don't know if mine's warranted or not. But I was bored and checking out fish stuff and saw it on their web site, so wham... Why not.
