Thanks so much for all the comments. I am traveling and this was a nice surprise when I awoke this morning, makes for a nice travel day.

This is one of my goldfish. I put him in a skinny vase so he would swim upward. Natural light. The waves in the background are curtains in the window. I cropped and then rotated, black and white conversion, CEP4 filter, a little texture and not much else. Can't remember all at the moment.

Thanks again.

Very different, and really beautifully done. If this were mine I'd have a huge print of it hanging on my wall. Yes, it's THAT good. Many congrats on your red.

Commenting only because my phone won't allow voting

This processing is hard for my sight( not you) The colors are blending together for me, but I can see the shadows of the tail and fins, what a great different concept

I wish the background was a bit more muted somehow to really make the tail pop for me, a pretty fish, I love fish that have long tails like that

Loving this crop, and added texture. Simple and elegant at the same time, looks like a 21_F.gif RKT shot.
