Gold Fish Bowl

By becca_cusworth  
sorry to those who commented yesterday, but i made a few edits and i like this version better Smile

this is a rare photomanipulation from me, and i really need to practice.. but even so this was still really fun to do Smile

The best manipulations, for me, are the ones that have a natural looking result and this definitely achieves that.

Excellent work - and congrats on the EC/POTW.

lovely pic. Don't usually go for manipulated pics but this one works so well. Beautifully lit and composed very dreamy and calming. I love the contrast of the cold blue with the warm orange.

I like the colours and flow of the composition...

It has a genuine dreamy feel about it as if your thoughts are drifting in the tank with the fishes.
I keep tropical freshwater fish but at the moment have only four - I plan to get some more Smile

Well done on the EC.
