Anything you apply to the camera (settings) will still show in a RAW image.
The only difference being, a JPEG will 'lock in' those...
Absolutely mate. I think it's a good debate actually.
They should be unedited. But I've seen some really bad Photoshop work on the odd one or...
Thanks for the feedback guys.
I'm happy with the ranking. There were some epic scapes' this year, but one or two that were ranked too...
Here's a few for you..

Well done Ady. All the best for next years attempt. :angel:
You?....there's plenty on here who could win.
Many thanks everyone :angel:
I've helped 1 or 2, Stu. A bit of advice here and there.
I wont be entering mate. :wink:
I'm actually glad...
Trust me, i didnt show Ian anything. The first time i ever saw one of his tanks, i was blown away.
There's a ton more to come from Ian in the...
You've seen this a thousand times before, but here's my IAPLC entry. Rank 137.
Very well done to those from the UK.

Once youve established the basics and taken full control over your light situation, your rolling.
No matter how hard things can get, never give up.
I've posted an image from one of my first ever tanks....algae ridden.

Seeing as the Tropica catalogue is out, I can now show this. This is not my IAPLC shot. not good enough.
I was forced for time, so the stems did...
I still need a shot with all 6 in line. Getting a full tank shot will be tricky to, but doable.
Rather than clutter my journal up, here's a few shots from water change time.
It's quite difficult to get the fish where you want them. The...

Interesting read mate. I fancy another low tech approach.
If i may, I'd change garden centers to... garden centres. Bang...
Re: Low-tech aquarium
This is low tech. One i did a while back. No co2, ferts or water changes. I did it in about 10 weeks.
I prefer the 'high...
Re: A Different Approach/Untitled (the Mini M!!)
Cracking scape Tom. And a very well taken image. :thumbup:
Thanks mate. Just imagine, if all of your scapes you entered, got the top 100, you'd have a house full of these :D
cheers Ian :angel:
Well, a pleasant surprise came through the post this morning.
I thought the certificate i received was the only one issued, but I've received...
I just cant bring myself to do it mate.
For me, people that enter more than 1 tank, even under someone else's name, is against the rules. I'm...
I think next year, i'll enter something else...not my current tank. Unless of course i can capture it with awesome lighting,...
Now that the results are out, and others are posting their pics, i thought i;d put my final image back up :)
Some pretty harsh words from orchid :shifty:
I personally, think it's been executed brilliantly. who cares if it's a Japanese, English or even...
Thanks mate. I'll try my hardest, but i dont want it to rule my life, as in 'i must do better...i must do better' that'd just screw my head up. If...
Nice scape James. A classic JM scape :thumbup:
Thanks everyone. :D Believe me, i really didn't expect such a ranking. with different coloured rocks, i thought 800 would of been more...
Well, i'm a little took back with 95th. I didnt think it was good enough, what with different coloured stones.
here's one of my first ever.
loving the BBA in the first pic...
Absolutely beautiful. Very inspiring.
Re: 120cm - George of the Jungle
This scape is so well executed!... Brilliant in fact.
A jungle style scape, but with the chaos...
Thank you Viktor. I'm currently drawing inspiration from your tanks at the moment, as they're my favorites at this current time. Very impressive....
Sometimes, I'll go through old pics and come across images, i didn't like at the time. Here's one, which i let slip through.
In the next 120cm i...
Very nice George!
A dutch themed tank, which has little touches of a Nature Aquarium... if that makes sense.
A double whammy...
recently, I may have been a bit 'downbeat' about scapes like this, but this particular scape' seems to make me go back on my view a little.
Re: Dutch - My most challenging aquascape
stem control is tough mate, inst it?...you've done good though.
I pass on the plants :lol:...
Andy mate, these were the 2nd and 3rd tanks i'd ever done.
The one to the right was my first full on attempt at a planted tank....about 4 years...
it's my 60 x 30 x 36
I plan on using it again sometime soon. :thumbup:
and another...Autumn Blush
It's strange, At the time, i never liked these tanks, but looking back they seem OK. :eh:
Searching through old hard drives, i came across some older set ups.
The Henge in its infancy.
looks nice mate. I bet the brush got some hammer in this one. :D
yes and no mate. I miss the 'innocence' of a scape done without little knowledge. Sometimes, knowing too much can hinder us....painting by numbers...
i've just gone through some old pics, first scapes, and came across this.
I cant remember the dates :lol:
without taking too much from the thread, Chilled! you've started one of the best threads in ages.
For newcomers and even the advance hobbiest...
can anyone join in? :mrgreen:
That's gorgeous mate. seriously nice.
such a great stone layout!
The stems need levelling at the level of the stones.

real clean images. i'd love to of helped you out with taking the images.
To get the whole ripple, blue/white...
that looks great.
that clock must be real trippy after a few beers! :lol:
here's my nano watching HP
I cant deal with an empty tank! This is to keep the wife semi happy too. if it were empty for 4 weeks, it'd be gone for sure.
in everyone else's gaff but mine! :lol:
the best one yet IMO! it looks surreal or enchanting to me.
well, my hat truly comes off to you!
I'm certain this will be an inspirational tank to many, including myself.
Great rock placement, great...
fantastic Devin. :thumbup:
but surely with good maintenance, this wont be a problem?
personally no.1 is brilliant. classic iwagumi.

oh mate, that's gorgeous. It's great to see it done properly.
:shock: they do!....
different styles my friend, and your ripariums are to die for
i'm becoming more and more impressed the more i see.
very tempting indeed, to maybe try one myself
ahhh...there you go then. an Irish theme :lol: even better.
There's an underlying theme, or something that says...british.
I personally love it. the wood is different to what we usually see, and the...

the ones you think are, aren't...and vice versa :wink:
I personally prefer this to your large tank mate, but this is more my cup of tea.
I'm glad you started a thread on this.
i was truly gob smacked when i saw this image in the competition!
There's one thing you've got nailed...
go for it ,mate! :D
wonderfully crisp and clean. a pretty quickly completed scape i'd guess?
i love it, the side view holds my attention for longer. both front and side views work well.
maybe, it could work almost as a corner tank?........
this tank finished an age ago. i almost forgot about it.....(just checking dates).....errr, yeah, way back in december, my early days! :lol:
you can see that this tank has been a huge learning curve for you aaron. it's apparent to me that one huge thing youve learnt is the aesthetics of...
the next MA scape (in the 90cm) maybe along those lines :wink: stemmy heaven!
oh sorry dan, :P
nah, it's not my birthday literally. just from that tank to what i'm doing currently is a year. although i've been at it for 18 months or so now....
i did show something similar of the same tank, but that was an age ago. i was sifting through images and stumbled across this :lol:
this was exactly 1 year ago to the day. this was what i ended up after discovering EI and co2.
it must be nice to have 2 birds on one arm! :lol:
nice scape nico, truly! it's the red that makes the scape for me.
I'm a tad envious that you...
Re: "The Miracle Mire"
well, some may know this tank is dead. i lost roughly 60 fish all my shrimp. and in trying to put things right i wrecked the whole layout.
i just realised my wood my 60 is the same as yours :oops: i didnt copy...honest.
well for me the amazing bit is no co2. thats brilliant.some...
how do you mean? for or against the idea?
yeah, if you read the info on amano's work, theres one bit that says "aeration" usually something like lilly pipe 14 hours during night. so he's...
ha ha it's Dan! i know now :D
