Been working through my photographic backlog (so many photos to edit!) and I've processed a load of shots of pond creatures taken with my aquarium setup.

Impressive set. An insight to the activity never seen by most. Good detail and yet an unusual washed out effect (I know it's all underwater).

Best regards

Yes I agree, these are excellent, especially as they are shot through the side of an aquarium. Especially liking the first two - the DOF in the first and the angles in the second Top stuff

Nos. 3,4 and 6 work very well for me. They are interesting and out of the ordinary for me.

They are all with Pentax DFA 100mm Macro lens, with off camera flash. I may have used extension tubes for the really close up shots but honestly can't remember!
