Siamese fighting fish
Posted By: dugrant153, 04-06-2008, 03:29 PM

Witness the awesome power of this fully-armed and operational DA*!!! haha... couldn't resist...

okay. cheese aside, these pictures were taken with the DA*16-50, and post processed slightly in Photoshop Elements 6.0. Unfortunately, flickr compresse them quite a bit, so it only looks decent at this resolution size (or as the original file but it's too big to post).

In this shot, I used a flash that sat near the left side of the tank.

Fish tank lighting only.

PS: this fish's name is "Hyper Sushi", for reasons I will have to explain some other time.
PPS: yes, I know there's little white spots and green spots on the pictures. The white spots are little life forms that appear from an overabundance of nutrients in the water. The green spots are algae. Unfortunately and fortunately, the DA* lens is sharp enough to pick it all up. DOH!

C+C welcome!

Nice shots Jon, the first could be in a catalogue. Looks like your 16-50 is a good copy. I am still leery of buying this lens but shots like yours could convince me.

NaCl(but I'm saving for a DA * 300 or the 60-250 first)H2O

Those little green spots will show up on a cheap and nasty P & S, that's why my first rule of aquarium photography is to clean the glass. A old credit card makes short work of the algae.
