Photo of April 07 Winner - Gully's Cobia

This months competition is a bit of a mixed bag with a nice underwater shot, a couple of stoinking catches and a few great photos. When you decide for the winner, take in the clarity/composition of the photo, the story behind the catch and the fish it self. Click on the Photo or Title underneath each image to enlarge. Good luck to all entrants. :)

Shizz's Tailor

Good selection of fish/pics this time around.

I ended up voting for Shizz's tailor. Composition - nice centre of interest, horizon and water line almost falling on even thirds. Possibly a bit of leading lines, with the rod rod butt drawing your eye up to the tailors face. Good catch from the beach as well, not to mention it was also released. Possibly a good cover shot.

Gully's Cobia

Mon, 2007-04-23 21:42

Was a toss up between the Cobia and Shizz's Tailor! As said by Big John the pic of the tailor is excellent and more than worthy of a cover shot, however I personaly like the pic of the cobia in the water and that gets my vote!!! I like seeing the under water action of the fish.
