Big Guy!
1/6, f/4, ISO 1600, 105mm, hand-held. You talk about poor lighting conditions! Shoot at an Aquarium, LOL! Atltanta BP Shoot. Talk about a learning experience! I have very few that turned out halfway decently.

I had the same challenge. I was up to ISO 3200 and still tough. You did great on this one, Terry!

I share your feelings about aquarium photography, Terry!
Then this one looks like you have mastered the technique for these dificult captures. Great work, and an astounding capture, your fish looks as though he could be a distant relative of our Aussie Barrumundi!

Great shot. I know how hard this is. I did not get anything that I liked when I tried shooting thru the glass.

This is the reason I like Fast Lenses...f/2.8 lets in twice as much light as f/4....But, a Great Photographer like you Terry, can excel with anything....Beautiful Shot of this handsome Grouper!! :^)
