Yep, another dead fish picture! I do think it's rather pretty in a strange way.

I've deleted more dead fish pictures than most people have probably ever taken, unless they've been to either the Salton Sea or Redondo Beach harbor, where apparently there was a large fish die-off today. Anyway, this one was from the Salton Sea. I didn't make it out to the harbor.

Excellent. That eye socket is disturbing.

This did much better than I thought it might. We all know how dead fish are received here - ha!

I still love this image. It's really inspired for the challenge - and even by itself.

Yes, but for the eye of nothingness he looks to be swimming towards his appointments.

I thought this might be you, with the Salton Sea and all. Very well done!

Gutsy move to put a dead fish. But I must admit, I like the black eyes... (or lack off?)

Love it. I especially like being able to see through the eye socket to an out of focus area. I like the lighting on the top half of the carcass as well. Great texture.
