Taken in very dark conditions at the London Aquarium where the use of flash isn't permitted.

Had to go to ISO 800 to keep the shutter speed reasonable.

Could have done with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 (next on the shopping list..!!)

I'm so glad he's on screen and not in front of me. Super shot with difficult lighting conditions.

Neil, - this is a superb shot under difficult circumstances. Technically excellent. To make it a better composition requires a little post processing work - something with the space restriction in the Aquarium, lens etc you cant do in camera.


My mod has the format changed by adding height, and adding some space in front of the croc as hes very close to the edge. All done in CS4 by adding canvas space and cloning and copying the background into the new space. I did a curves adjustment that brightened hi a little, and altered the tone a little.

To see the mod, click on the modifications tab at the top of the screen.



I hope you like the mod, and find the feedback constructive



regards


Willie

Excellent exposure under very trying conditions as has already been pointed out. Composition is very difficult as you are restricted in your movement (but safe from getting eaten Wink)so you have to wait for him to move to get in a better position. I think I would be looking to make more of the head, even at the expense of not getting him all in the frame.

Very good shot though

Best wishes

Catherine
