3.01 - "Solid" 

"Tang Portrait" From coloration to shape, when I think of unique, this marine fish comes to mind. If you can catch it in just the right light, the pectoral fins light up like orange fiber optics.

This is a four-star image for me. I love the low-key lighting and the richness of the color contrast between the orange lighting on the fins and the blue spots. The one tiny thing I'd like to see is a bit more definition in the eyes. But, otherwise, this is National Geographic stuff.

Thanks much, Brad.

Well done. I think it would be really easy to have over exposed this image but you nailed it in my opinion.

Thanks, Chris. I almost went with even more contrast, so the the dots would almost appeared to float in thin air (or water), but decided to keep some form visible.

Really like it! love the muted blue and purple and the bright orange.

(Watermark is distracting and does take away from the cleanliness of the image. I understand why it's there.. but.. yea.. )
