This was shot through the glass of the tank. I did everything that I know how to do to speed up the shutter speed to stop the fish and anemone. The composition is something I like here with the fish sort of framing the anemone. Also that some of the fish have some detail, as does the anemone. However, I still can't figure out how some get such crisp vibrant underwater tank images. I was moderately pleased at this my first real attempt but will have to work at it more.

The photo is spectacular. I'm afraid the text is underwhelming. I'm going to vote on the photo only :)

Thats an awesome aquarium shot, I would have left the text off. It just does not fit real well. But I love the anenome, they are so cool.

the color is very nice but the font of the text do not seem appropriate for a postcard

Great shot, but I feel like the font is too square and boldly colored, and doesn't seem to go with the flowing water and tentacles of the sea creature.

Love the image...but the text, while witty is hard to read.

This would look better if the text was more interesting.

Very nice! One tiny thing I'd change -- I'd move the text on the right a little more to the right, so the margin will match the text on the left.

The picture itself is a 10. I don't think the blue chosen for the text was the right choice. Not sure what color would have worked best, but the blue feels really out of place in my opinion and is a distraction. I think just going with the simple Seattle Aquarium title would have worked and maybe choose the same yellow from the center of the anema (sp). Score: 9.
