Very very nice pictures, all of them. All of the entrants should take a bow.

Being into photography myself, I'd be interested in what equipment, technique and settings were used in the taking the photos. After having had limited success with my fish photography I'm eager to learn form "the masters".

Cheers.

Hmm...

Trouble with that is you either lose the relationship between the photo and the details or you duplicate the photo in the thread which chews up more disk space AND creates more work for the poster.

No, I think it would be better if we just asked the submitters nicely, both past and future, to please post details, much like the do in Photo Life, Cottage Life, etc. The more information the better, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, camera, lense, lighting, hand held/tripod and also a bit of anecdotal information about the shot.

Cheers.

1600? Very good image quality at that high ISO! So I suspect it was hand held with natural lighting? But I suspect that your 'natural' tank lighting is pretty bright. Did you need to do any post image manipulation? If you did what did you do and using what software? You really nailed the focus, especially with the lense at f4.

Again, nice pic.

Cheers.
