Here are some of the finds after an evening at the fish shop:


Nandus nandus - a carnivorous freshwater perch



Caught on Digital Film - One of the Seven Deadly Sins - Gluttony !
A greedy Nandus nandus was trying to swallow a cory whole ... unsuccessfully. One of the spines of the cory has pierced through the mouth of the perch locking both fishes together !



Assam Fish Heads
Four curious Assam Snakeheads peeping over a piece of driftwood



Channa stewartii - A colourful species of snakehead from India



Wolf Fish - A ferocious freshwater oddball species



Payara - another ferocious freshwater oddball species



A rare and newly discovered species of cichlids from Rio Salto in South America



Indian Sun Fish



Sturgeon Catfish



Australian Lungfish - A rare and very expensive species of lungfish. It is one of the longest surviving species on Earth having been around for more than 350 million years.

It is nice but do you think you overdone with PS? Did you?

Just my two cents....

Good stuff!

Wow! The second picture is really a case of being at the right place at the right time. Did you shoot in RAW or JPEG?

Cheers,

Thanks. Just the usual PS - colour cast removal, levels, curves, etc. Nothing very fanciful. I try to ensure that the colours of the fishes in the pics match those in real life as much as possible as these are meant to be stock photos. Come to think of it, I don't seem to need to do much USM in PS nowadays as the sharpening done in Capture One during raw conversion is usually quite sufficient.

I was quite lucky that night and managed to get a couple of candid shots. I shoot mainly in RAW so that I can get better colour cast removal during RAW conversion. You know how difficult it is to get crystal-clear and colourless water in live-fish shop. :(
