This is an order of pescado frito that we got as takeout from a local Mexican/Peruvian restaurant. We were amused when it came as a whole fish. I saved the remains for about 2 weeks afterwards (in the fridge)... knew there was something it was waiting for.

Thanks very much for all the fun comments and the ribbon.

I hope the smell in your fridge is gone! Probably more than any other, this image grabbed me. Not sure if it was the shock value or the misquote. Congrats on the ribbon.

Too funny! Congrats on the well deserved ribbon. Brilliant idea and very well executed - the PP is perfect. I can see this on a t-shirt. :-D

Fantastic image. Well done on the great finish as well. (I'm also I'm flattered to have been mistaken for you....i guess once you enter into the joys of dead fish photography it is hard to remove the stink/stigma. Not that i'd want to of course.)

Amazing piece, and I agree with h2, this is very print worthy. I also love the touch of expressionism.

You did it, man! (or is that a yet another misquote?).

I like the untidy bg, and the color palette is just wonderful.

Congratulations. Just wonderful and a fascinating composition, with almost all the detail in the right half of the image, but enough in the left half to keep my interest. I would love to see any alternatives you considered, and/or hear what your thought process was for coming up with this composition.
