    I like the cigar-in-the-mouth-of-a-gangsta look of this one, but, because of cropping, it is lower than 1600 pixels. Enjoy your halloween weekend.

I like both of them...what great photo ops!!! Very unique...and very well done. And I got a kick out of the titles you gave each of them as well. Great work, Marty.

Here's lookin' at you, kid! Don't you just wonder what's going through the minds of the subjects on the other side of the lens? I love the cigar guy -- straight out of The Sopranos. Both of these shots are great!

Fabulous underwater capture...I too like both of them.

I am so behind in commenting...came home from Indiana sick as a dog, thank goodness I wasn't sick while there.

What a great series of fish photography,Marty...Excellent details and very well executed shots of this subject through glass and using flash...I like the humor in it a lot...
Very well presented....
Sorry about your hard drive,I understand very well..I transfer a lot of my images to a 1TB drive (my 2009 butterflies are in there...)don't know if I can recover the images that are in the crased drive...

LOL, Marty - he does look rather gangsta-ish! I marvel at your ability (and perfect camera work) to capture these fellas so wonderfully thru the water, glass AND using a flash..EXCELLENT expertise, all around!
