First Impressions
Can't see anyone. But I haven't been much good at finding them so far with other entries in this Challenge. On first impressions the subjects look too small to have a person in there...

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Ok, just read your Photographer's Comments. Yes, I saw the stripey fish, no it didn't seem to fit the Challenge description for me. Yes, I understand you 'changed this description' and 'wanted to enter something', I understand that urge to enter, but changing the description of the Challenge like this, in a challenge such as this one, just doesn't work and makes it look like you misunderstood the Challenge or didn't read the description.

As is, it is difficult for me to properly critique this submission.

I can mention that the toning seems harsh and the oversaturation isn't enhancing your subjects. The out of focus areas at the bottom of the frame also detract.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
68/73 is not bad considering there is no person in there. Quite a few comments in-Challenge and an average score from them of 5 makes me wonder whether they were not holding the Challenge theme strongly in mind or liked your interpretation or gave you the benefit of the doubt and assumed they could not find a person.

Ok, just the read the comments received and there's a bit of a mix in there of how they perceive this image and your interpretation for this Challenge.

I don't think this fits the Challenge, no matter how 'out of the box' you want to be. I understand the concept, but perhaps choosing the other Challenge theme (Back to School II) may have been easier to shoot for.

Can't see him

I think I see what you were going for but the description says to hide a person. I don't see a person, just a striped cracker.
