Challenge: Best of 2004 (Advanced Editing III*)
Camera: Nikon D100
Location: Sea Life Centre, Birmingham
Date: Sep 6, 2004
Aperture: F/7.1
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Jan 15, 2005

Taken on my son's first birthday, on a trip round the Birmingham Sea Life centre. Macro lens at 90mm, and lots of experimentation with the direction of the flash to get the exposure right. Oh and a bit of patience to wait for the subject to smile nicely!

Levels, cropped, few blemishes cloned out and saved for DPC.

Thankyou for all the kind comments. Have tried a lot of these aquarium shots, but this is the one that I've had the best results with.

Nice photo. I've never seen a sea horse like this before. Beautiful colors. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005.

wow! this is one of those images that is really easy to underappreciate--until you try to do it yourself! great work here, all the way around. i hope this isn't being overlooked in this huge challenge, and that it is getting the attention it deserves. good luck here, and in the challenges yet to come!

Very pretty - I like the colours - tank shots like these aren't easy and you've done well! Even better if this isnt a tank shot (Im just playing the odds :P).

Super! A deeper DOF would have been nice, but I love it as-is.
