Do you remember Bubble Tubes? This is one of those little plastic fish from one of those tubes but now in a tank Smile

This is a re-work of █YESTERDAYS█ image thats is now deleted and uploaded as a mod. I have brightened and boosted the yellow. Thanks to all who clicked and commented on yesterdays, I will promise to catch up with you all later tonight. I just had to try and figure out what was wrong with the last one. Maybe it's just not a good image and got what it deserved? Thanks everyone Smile

1/2000 sec
F/7.8
ISO 50

This was set-up in a 16 x 8 inch glass tank. The back of the tank had a sheet of white Perspex taped to it, and a slave flash with a blue balloon stretched over it to give the graduated blue colouring to the back lighting. The slave flash was approx three inches from the Perspex, and was triggered by a softbox a few feet from the front of the tank.

The plastic fish was lit by the softbox at the front but wasn't really close enough to light it well, so shadow highlight tool was used to enhance the look of the fish. I did try a snoot on the fish but it didn't give me the result I wanted.

Hmmm I'm starting to finally get the message that people just don't like this image...no problem, I will just delete both of them once I've caught up with the very kind people who did like them.

This is a vast improvement on those yellows Rob,I did like yearterday's image but your re-work has paid off.
I could see this as a set of tiles for a bathroom,you know,ones that are dotted around within the plain ones,a shower curtain..or even a jigsaw puzzle,the blues would be a challenge there!
Good work & an extra sticker too..well done you!

Janet, you've made me smile, but I don't think anyone would buy them if they were printed on tiles, but the jigsaw sounds good! I was thinking beach towel or shower curtain...or how about on a one piece swimsuit Lol!
