Oh! This would be awesome if it weren't for the grain. :( I love the tones, the colors, and the subject is so interesting, too! Good shot.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Oh, great. I get to critique an image by one of the people who keeps DPC on an even keel. And the guy does a fish picture!

Okay, you didn't score well (no kidding) with this rather nice creature which is almost a caricature of a fish. It's well composed in the frame, with good overall balance. Those horizontal swirls behind the fish balance the vertical orientation of the fish perfectly. You must have had a murky fish tank indeed, to be forced to use ISO 1600. Usually you can eke out a bit more ambient light than that in an acquarium shot.

Of course the voters went into a feeding frenzy over all the grain thus produced. That is the only real reason I can find to have this humorous image rated so low when it meets the Challenge nicely and is funny to boot.

Dare I say it? I wish you the best of good luck in future Challenges.

And thanks for all you do for DPC.

Well composed/cropped. DOF seems focused mid-body, would have been better on the face, but this is a very difficult subject.

This is so cool! Wish it wasn't quite so grainy, nonetheless...very nice image. Good luck in the challenge.
