I literally took an entire 256mb card of pictures just to get a shot that wasn't blurry! Why can't fish be trained to pose ?!

Beautiful subject... needs a little more "action", though. It looks like the fish stopped and posed.

Th Tang looks a little washed out.

Great colors, and a nice background. Though a tighter crop of the fish would've worked out better.

Subject seems a little out of focus. Nice coloring.

Could've been 10, fish didn't smile. :-)

It is a nice photo but... stopped motion?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/20/2002 03:32:00 AM
Yes, I think I see those fins moving! Good photo. Maybe a little more color in the background..

The fish is beautiful.

Nice picture. Doesn't imply lots of motion though.

the expoure is a little bright, the yellow is all blown out on top of his head. The black is really nice, though!

Beautiful! Sure its real? The fish is great but the background is uninteresting. I would have cropped a bit off the top

beautifully sharp ... how'd you get the black background?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2002 05:04:00 PM
fish sure are cute. good lack of reflections in the glass
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great colour, but I'm left wondering what the thing on the right is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2002 03:29:00 PM
Nice pic. I really like bright colors against a black background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2002 09:44:00 AM
nice stopped motion--you can make out the curl of his fin! Great colors.

Nice aquarium shot! Great colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2002 05:25:00 PM
Nicely executed shot, looks almost out of focus though and whatever light source is being reflected of its tail is a bit distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2002 04:54:00 PM
Eye popping color! Nice composition. Cropped just right in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Sharp photo. Like the bubble trail. I like the blacked-out background to make this fish stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2002 01:38:00 PM
nice shot, lovely colours
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2002 10:25:00 AM
Nice contrast of colors :)

Such precision! What a fab photo!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 08:26:00 PM
Beautiful. Is that from your own aquarium? My only suggestion is to perhaps lighten up the background a little more, although the neon color of the fish does create a nice contrast. An 8 for you!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 07:01:00 PM
nice close up!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 06:27:00 PM
Beautiful picture. Is that a real fish?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 06:01:00 PM
Nice, very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 06:01:00 PM
good sharp picture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a very nice Tang but I don't like it as a 'stopped motion' challenge entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 09:58:00 AM
People will say "not enough motion". That's just because you stopped it so well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 09:37:00 AM
Excellent color and good composition. I'm guessing you had to be patient and take lots of frames to catch thsi guy, but it looks like he is just sitting there, "being still".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 09:36:00 AM
Good close up and colourful subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 09:32:00 AM
cool coloring and lighting. is he puckering for his reward kiss?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2002 08:42:00 AM
VERY nice ! The color is just amazing. I see you even caught the tiny fin at a stand still. Nice job:)
