I don't know about the cover.....but that last one should definitely be on the month of December....

Actually, I second Roger......the 1st clownfish should take the cover shot. They're sort of the poster fish for saltwater aquariums.

It's a very difficult choice though....they're ALL absolutely GORGEOUS pictures......my eyes are salivating just looking at them !

I'm looking at picture number 8 and remembering the processed version that was posted and which caused a big debate on how much to process an image. the original looked much better than this although the poster said that very minimal processing was done and that he was following some techniques in flash.. Can anyone remember which month that was to compare the pictures.

The picture of the Mandarin is the coolest picture. The backround is black, looks like the moonlights are on and the mandarin has some sick colors. That should be the cover

I think it's a toss up between the #1 and the mandarin. The crab pic is great.

There all great pics! How come I can't find calendars like that at Borders? The mandarin is awesome, but I chose the zoas(8). I think the cover should be darker and 8 popped to me.

Am I seeing the same picture of the mandarin as everyone else? The one I'm looking at is blurry, maybe I'm missing something.

Aquafred,
Good eye. Never saw the 12th Tang before you mentioned it.

Blazer the mandarin picture is also looking blurry for me but Ebmorri mentionned that one picture is failing to show so maybe that could be the Mandarin Picutre everyone is talking about? Unfortunately that link Ebmorry posted is not opening for me too
