This is awesome! It almost looks like your found a fossil. It works perfectly as a duotone, I don't think you'd have the same image if you kept it in color.

Has anyone bought this print yet, lol? Hmm, bad use of punctuation, I'm not asking if I'm laughing. My view of photography is: "You've taken a great shot if it raises emotion out of your viewer". I think this is a great shot. The contrast, the brightness levels; they all work for this picture. Plus, it's something everyone can relate to. Who hasn't seen a dead fish on the bank of a river or lake?

I wish I took this shot.

I'm really impressed by the depth of the textures in your image. They reflect they gravity of your subject well, so does the B&W conversion.

I read the story behind this one in your interview. I can completely relate, being a physical athro major and all. I love this shot. It reminds me of fossils too.

Sepia is the perfect coloration for this. Nice depth.

Did I not comment on this already? Sher, I think this is a marvellous shot - I love the overtones of antique life about it; it almost might be pre-historic. Marvellous photography.

I love this!

Every time I see a dead fish shot I wish the title was 'I've found Nemo!'. Seriously, this is a great shot and I'm surprised it didn't come in MUCH higher. Ben

I like this type of art. it make's a great stock photo for environmentalist uses and it also fits well with any prehistoric theme. I love the coloring and the sharpness in the subject and the background. The border is perfect for cleaning up the edges without taking away from the picture. 9

Not too keen on the colour of the border, but I think it's a superb shot and your processing is most excellent. Great work.

It feels like a lithograph to me and it is this graphic quality that attracts me to this. Excellent work.

Stunning capture! Nice find. I like the duotone you've used.

Great picture. I love the texture and tones in the dirt. The carcass looks awsome. My hightest vote in this challenge: 10.

Nice find and capture. Works well in duotone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 08:17:23 PM
The tones really make this image stand out--oh and also the fact that it's a grisly looking dead fish. 8

Very interesting...great use of the dodge and burn tool ;)...wish the border where black but that is just a personal opinion...good luck ;)

great image. nice choice of sepia tones. inspires me to comb the beaches and look for similar stuff to photo.

I thought that I was the only one with pictures of dead fish. Good picture

Dramatic!! Good choice of B&W conversion!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/20/2005 02:19:52 PM
Appears almost fossilised: very nice B/W conversion. Excellent composition making it seem like a page from a Victorian natural history book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 12:23:04 AM
Awesome photo, definitely unique and a great choice using that tone. Having not seen any other angles to this shot, I don' t know if they'd be better but they'd be worth seeing. Shooting straight down like this is okay but I wonder if there'd be something even more interesting. Solid 8, might bump up later.
