    I always have a problem choosing. I finally decided to pick the one I would most like in the annual calendar. Unfortunately, this might not be the best photo but I had to come up with SOME sort of criteria :grin:

    No, We've started running a picture of the month competition for a yearly tonmo calendar. These are all WAMAS members.

    Consider this your 4 day month btw.

    Oh, woops!!! I'm sorry, doing too many things at once. I had just submitted my pic to my reef society's POTM competition. It's a reef club in DC- Washington D.C. Area Marine Aquariest Society.

    Very sorry, my bad, I can correct that I am 100% sure they're all TONMO submissions. :banghead:

    Sorry, I should have clarified - he is a TONMO member (albeit a very infrequent visitor). He is not a professional photographer.
