    This was one healthy girl, around five inches in length. I had to stand on a bench to get to a point where the backlighting was less intrusive. In retrospect, a slightly smaller aperture would have helped this shot. Oh well, maybe next time...

    That's an impressive looking beastie!

    I think you've done well with the technical aspects - it's not too bright and the focus looks good to me. The depth-of-field is good as well, with the good bits sharp. Perhaps a little niggley, but to my mind it's a bit central to the picture - more like a shot from a scientific journal or magazine than an "art" photo.

    Good effort though - you certainly captured it's likeness very well.

    Thanks Rob
    You are correct, it does seem a bit clinical. I'll see if I can do something about that.
