I took my son to the local pet shop to look at puppies. I spotted this fish and thought it might be a different twist on the current challenge. A little left of the centre.

Props for the title... love it! Or maybe I've just seen it about 10 gazillion times...LOL

The image is very striking, love the colors. The border matches, but I think it pulls a little of the attention away from fishie, and he deserves all the glamour. I don't hate the border, don't get me wrong... I kinda like it...but the border patrol I am sure is all over you about it. I like the way you've filled the frame with the subject. Good work! :o)

I really dislike the border. I like the image but the border really repels me...

I moved my score on this photo up twice. The picture is nice, a soft focus and you didn't seem to get any glare from the fish tank. The border is the only thing I don't like. The blue seems to match well enough, but the yellow looks funny, at least on the side by the tail. I still gave you a 9.

I really don't care for the border (and those don't usually bug me) -- it's just overkill here. Beautiful fish though. Great subject for the challenge. I practically need to squint to look at it!

Nice but appears a bit out of focus to me. Great idea.

Excellent border around it.

Great Title. Looks a little soft. When shooting through most glass AF will hit a few mm far from the subject. I just chronicled a whole fish pet shop and also found that the scales stand out much better if you offset a KEY at 45 degrees to the fish. Remember that light will penetrate 2-3 MM into the fish before refracting.

The border pisses me off. It is to bright and destracting.

The rest of the image is quite nice. I like the way you were able to capture the fish without being slapped with the issues common to fishtank photography.

I am sorry if my initial statement sounded very harsh, but it was the first thing that popped into my head when your image loaded and I think it is important that you are aware of initial reactions to your work, once I got past the border the rest of the image is very nice.
