Thanks so much for the compliments, Roger, Carla, Lawrence, Judy, and Ermanno! We have a great Koi pond where I work but they're constantly on the move! I try to photograph them quite often, but rarely get a good shot. This guy is a little ahead of the focus, but I liked his pose. I thought the PS work gave this a "painterly" look :-)

I've had that problem the few times I've tried to capture these guys, but this is just a super shot, Steve! Incredible color and wonderful composition!

This is just beautiful, Steve. The effect was perfect - he is one gorgeous fishy! And in perfect position!

Thanks Debra, Marsha, Bobbie, and KK. I'll have to admit that I like this myself. We'll see what the judges think--we usually don't agree:-)

The motion you captured is excellent...he naturally is "ahead of the focus". Super rich colors & excellent shot, Steve. I hope to be seeing this one again as well. :-)
