Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Chips (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Date: Apr 5, 2011
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250 sec
Date Uploaded: Apr 5, 2011


I had a much more extensive setup in mind, with aquatic plants, bubbles, etc. everything built in chips.

I was really busy at work and running out of time for that, so my wife kindly created the fish. I simply had the time to attach it vertically, set some basic lighting up, and fire out some test shots that all the chips fell on the floor: the glue was not really effective. No time left to start from scratch.

We were very sorry, and decided to submit this test shot anyway, even if it was not finalized at all. I am very aware this is quite a poor quality photography. Anyway, thank you all for your nice votes and comments, they reward my wife's work much more than anything else on this one!

Your brain is like a creative super computer, they should preserve it like Einstein's for research. Fish and chips, amazing, you should be in advertising.

Just brilliant! Congrats. I look at your work and I think, "Why didn't I think of that?!"

congrats Christophe! great idea, as usual. Love the fishing lines, make it more funky.

I thought this was yours and I thought it was quite poor compared to your usual work. It's a shame that you even ribbon with a test shot :-P

Great job on the fish construction. Very creative. Congrats on the red!

Really, Christophe???? Is there NO stopping you??? I think if your hands were tied behind your back and you were blindfolded, you'd still manage to take a ribbon-winning picture.

So, even your test shots get ribbons, eh? Sheesh... Congrats to your wife on a fabulous construction :-)

Hmmm...at first glance it doesn't really strike me as a great photo. However, after looking it over...the chips...the "fishing line" and the positioning...would have been better with a blue background...but.....I think I'll give it a ...... 10

Very creative and an attractive image.

Sometimes one must decide if one is voting on the photo or the construction, so in this case it is a pleasure that both are good (though I might prefer to see the fish angled towards the camera rather than away)! Very nice color and light.

I really like this one, very original, but I would like to see this image without the lines hanging the figure. But everything is gorgeous, the texture, the light. Very nice job!
