    Was at Tatton on Monday afternoon and saw something fishy going on. Just happened to have my camera with me and took a couple of shots.

    What do you think?

    I think it’s hilarious John. Like the colour one best and I find the shadows are so important.

    Well on the ” scale” of things–this is a very good “catch”-  where were you “perch-ed” or was it an oppor-tuna–ty  shot- its what Ian would call—fillet de plie  engoujon—-or  from a “birds eye” view—fish fingers–  Very good John–bet you were kippered when you saw those. You must have had whale of a time–just watch some shark does not  nick your picture John–FLYpeople about  who will “skate   off” with them–slippery as eels—-I like the shadows you have reeled in–  Like Peter remarked–and he knows all about  The Five Fishes–the colour is best–and when you see a pic, you have to trawl it in. –and you have that one in the net–well done–with salt and vinegar please.  What   plaice did you find these  John–(now if you post a pic, of five loaves-I will be getting a bit concerned!!!—You could get hooked on this—try and not rise to the bait–only kidding–all a red herring–.just a sprat to catch a mackerel.

    Very, very fuuny Ken. I really enjoyed laughing at that! I couldn’t compete with your witt.

    I’d rather like to see a crop of the bottom half of the colour photo, with just the enigmatic fish shadows. Quite surreal!

    Ken, you are worse than I am – but I can take the pun-ishment!

    It was intended seriously, though of course I couldn’t resist the introduction. I’m quite pleased with the idea. I liked those three trees in the background. Incidentally the files were created with a preset I now have in lightroom to make 650px sRGB jpegs at 70k max size but I wonder whether I should have not told it to “sharpen for screen” because I can see a slight halo on the distant trees which is not showing on the original.

    Not quite sure what you mean, Ian. The photos are already cropped so that top and bottom echo each other. If you mean to get rid of the real fish and just keep the shadows that might work except that the distant trees are not sharp and I think they would need to be if they are to be more of  a focal point. It is very useful indeed the way the XT1 indicates depth of field and I knew when I was taking the shot that they would not be tack sharp but I was happy with that.

    Yes, I meant seeing what it looks like if you lose the real fish (and the three trees), and keep only the shadows. The shadows looks sharp enough. But you would lose a lot of pixels – and it would be quite a quirky picture! 😉

    A very quirky image already but I like it.  I think it needs the trees.  I like the shape of the fish shadows on the colour but just to be awkward prefer the overall composition of the mono.
