A Fish
Lens: DA 35/2.8 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Texas Sea Center ISO: 3200 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: Sailor, 08-28-2012, 02:04 PM

I've never had much luck in extracting good photos from aquaria, but I shot a few fish pics the other day at the Texas Sea Center if for no other reason, to remind myself how the K-5 operates. I'll trash all of 'em except perhaps this one, which intrigues me a bit for no reason I can articulate. Anyway, I'm grateful for the wonder of digital photography in which no expensive film is wasted.

The green and gold is a great color combo. I like the tail to the right swimming in the opposite direction. I might try and clone out the brown shapes in the lower right, but they may be too big for that. I like it though, nice one.

Nice shot.....except for the coloration, it reminds me of the millions of sun perch I caught as a kid...and they were delicious!

Regards!

Thanks very much. I've never tried cloning, owing to massive laziness.

A lucky shot. Fortunately, I don't loose money on the bad ones; I'd be in the poor house were that so.
