Christina C. Moore level-addict 1/12/2008 7:28:46 PM

I've been doing a lot of fish photography lately and so know how technically difficult it is. This is a particularly nice shot. Not only have you gotten good clarity on the fish, but have managed to create an appealing abstraction out of his environment. Kudos on this fine image. #5331191

Nikki McDonald level-addict 1/13/2008 8:01:06 AM

This is such a cool aquarium shot, Linda. The framing is perfect and of course the colors and clarity are right on. I had the same reaction as Sandi--everything is so "together" in this capture that I thought immediately of an animated film. I believe that there are no effects--but only because you say so :) This is amazing. #5332867

Karen Bacon level-addict 1/13/2008 9:04:46 AM
