Gary,

I see you've edited the Exif data to conceal the fact that this was captured with the increasingly difficult to find Pentax Sprat

Looking forward to something I can actually find fault with in 2011.

Another very distinctive, very well thought out and very well executed shot. You have a a very unusual approach to photography, Gary, and I really like it.

Thank you very much everyone. I found this quite a challenging still life to arrange-the fish being relatively long- it always seemed as if it was trying to escape! I tried it with a herring- less said about that the better....
Cheers, Gary

Wonderful tones, colours & composition Gary but I wish the light at the top of the peel was more subdued.
Regards,
Ian.

The fish looks rather glum, mind you it's not got a lot to smile about.

Excellent!!
