[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I hope I don't offend with this photo...that is not my intention. What I like about it ,is the colour, DOF/focus...just the sense of the fish that it shows...
This fish is a reef fish, common in the coastal waters of New Zealand.
I have sharpened the image... critiques and ideas welcome..althought again, I do apologise if this is offensive to anyone.

oh, yeah... very vibrant colors. So sharp and clear. well done.

Hi Meagan,
It certainly doesn't offend me! I grew up around Sydney & East Coast spearfishing and these we call Red Morwong or "Mowies" are great to catch. They have an uncanny skill of being able to hear the spear just as it is fired and "tilt" their bodies out of the way. It wasn't until I bought a special French made gun which was nice & silent that I got some BIG specimens up to 3kg.

This image is very vivid and the colours are nice and natural - nice & sharp too, the DOF is great.

No doubt you will offend someone out there but I bet they ate red meat or Suckling Pig OK for dinner.
We caught a lot of fish in those days but we ate everything ourselves, sometimes even on the same day at the speafishing spot onshore, cooked on a little gas bbq.

Thanks for taking me back to my spearfishing days!!

Hello Meagan,
There is nothing wrong with this picture I have seen much worse picutres here, we all know many people like fish to eat and fish in the fish tanks, this picture well shows the fish being caught and what a nice catch, nice colors indeed.

Very nice color, portrait, sharp, clearly pic. If this is offensive to anyone, I will hepl you by my workshop.

it looks tasty! TFS!

Beautiful catch/capture. I too was only offended that I didn't get to share in the eating!

The only comment that I have on the photo is the bright reflection around the middle of the fish, kinda removes some of the effect of the beautiful colours. Mind you then again, it does speak of beautiful sunny days on the beach spear fishing, so hmm, I still think you have a winner.

Lovely sharp image here Meagan, well done, and the colours are beautiful... no offence taken with this shot.

Nice BG blur.. well done.

Cheers Dawn.

Hello Meagan...no offence taken here either. Very similar to a fish we have in Australia which we call a bream. Excellent colour, good light and remarkable DOF. The back ground adds to the image. TFS,
Many thanks for your comment on
