The highest community rated photo was submitted by Tor-Ivar Næss whose beautiful seascape image showed smoothly flowing waves around a rocky beach with a stunning sunset. The randomly chosen winner was Jorge Tamez with a swimwear image. We will be in touch with both of you via your Fstoppers profiles to claim your prize.

I may have to disagree with the comment on focus/reflection. if the reflection is within the focal range then everything within that range will be in focus. no matter if it is 100m away. on one of my automobile images i will prove that and no editing has taken place.... only an observation... stef

False. If what you are saying was true, then focusing on the plane of a mirror would render all reflections sharp. Quite the opposite, focusing on the plane of the mirror (not on the reflections mind you, you need to focus on objects physically on the mirror or next to the mirror) renders all reflections out of focus.
As a matter of fact, if what you are saying was true, then obtaining true focus on a DSLR trough its mirror would be impossible, and in the viewfinder either everything would be sharp or everything would be out of focus.

The photograph of the anemone fish (at 21:08) was photographed in the wild (Ari Atoll to be specific). The anemone was partly "shedding", so I believe the cause for the tint you discussed was that when I lit it with strobes (absolutely necessary if you want to maintain any sort of colors at a depth), the dead part of its membrane reflected magenta light whereas the living part ("unshed") reflected a blue shade of light.

Wasn’t three of the photos already in past ctc? No problem on people re-submitting to win, but seeing the same photo get criticized in multiple reviews make the videos less interesting...
