    Difficult subject.
    Can't pose.
    Can't train.
    So random.
    So many to get in the way.

    So, after much waiting and watching, I have grabbed a couple more shots of my Koi. I think these are the sharpest yet, but on the one the focus is mid body rather than on the head. Oh well, I'll keep trying. What do you think?

    I like the second one, but all of the spots on the picture really bother me.

    The colors look really nice. I like both shots. #2 has more emotion in it though. :thumbup:

    I like both of these. Considering all the obstacles to get the shots, I think they truned out very well. I really love the first one.

    Very cool shots. I do agree about cloning to make the background totally black, though.

    Are you using a flash on these?

    1. nice shot though I would prefer to have there whole body and head in focus

    2. I like this one. Could be better as others mentioned to clone out the spots.

    I like number 2 a lot if you clone out the spots and make the black completely black xxx

    I really like the first one, like you said too bad the head wasn't focused too. they really pop out and the effect draws me in. Would love to see more.

    I like the lipstick on #2 and I would like to see the whole fish in focus #1.
    I have Koi also so I know how hard it is to get them suckers posed right and the water clear the light right etc. ;)
