    Hristo, you have an usual selection of fish! I've never seen anything like this fish. Quite unique and interesting. Do you have a full body shot of it?

    Not to mention, the photographs themselves look amazing. It's almost like the is no water or glass between the camera lens and the subject. :=D>

    Thanks!
    No, that Fellow is not exactly a “suckermouth”…more suppose to be a Loach one, though…
    Now He is around 15 cm. long and actually, didn’t feet his whole size in frame on the macro shots I made till now…

    So, here is another Loach fish… living in a Discus/Tetras/Rainbows tank of mine: Botia Macracantha

    Amazing photos!! Are you using a polarizing filter to get rid of glass-glare? Also, if you're using strobes, do you meter or use trial-and-error (maybe histogram analysis?) to get the proper exposure?

    All of my photo-equipment is noticed in my signature…I don’t use any filters, strobes…etc.
    Usually, my Speedlite 430EX is always situated over the tank(slave mod)…
    the other one - Canon Speedlite 580EX (wires connected with the camera in “master” mod) I hold in my left hand
    and move in front(like straight “fill” flash), dependent on the fish specific and fishes position…:idea:
    The both are with diffuser!
    That’s all.


    Yeah, Coming soon..., mate! [​IMG]
    Here is one in advance, which I’m sharing for the first time, especially for this site company…[FONT=&quot]

    Well this year we are going to San Marcos and Nikolay and his club will be there so I am sure there will be plenty of pictures this time.
    So if any body would like to join the trip will take place on 05/10/2007 and there will be many things to do other than aquatic plants.
    Best regards,
    Luis Navarro
