Catch o' the Day

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. #1198507

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. #8088155

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! #8088206

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. #8088350

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... #8090361

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! #8096481
