Challenge: Macro VIII (Minimal Editing I)
Camera: Nikon D800

Aperture: f36
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/20

Preiser 1/87th Scale model fisherman in a Goldfish bowl. The Goldfish is a picture printed out and positioned behind the bowl...

Minimal editing allowed so 'bubbles' in front of fish are not removable. Ideally I'd focus stack to get the fisherman and fish in focus and maybe add a 'castle' or plant to re-iterate the scale and goldfish bowl on a shelf feel..

2 x SB900 flash guns either side with small softboxes.

Thanks all for the feedback... I thought this was a good idea and had hoped for a higher place.

I disagree... I think it's a Macro shot of a Micro subject...

Very Perceptive... it didn't really work as a single shot, minimal edit challenge... would have liked to focus stack and make some edits...
