[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the days I was home, we took the boys to the park and my brother brought along his fishing rods. He caught this nice largemouth bass and since he and our other brother both do the catch and release thing (in fact, most of the guys I know do that)they like having photographic evidence they actually caught something. :))) The only problem with that is, it's hard to tell someone you caught a 10 - 12 pounder, when they can see in the photo it was more like 3 - 3 1/2...LOL

Haha Shelley,

it is funny that foto ! He looks like a man that is normally riding a big motorcycle with his long hair and bird. I think he also smokes to much, his moustache is a little different from colors then the rest of his hair.
I like the very good sharpness on him and the fish, and the unsharpness of the green behind him.


Hi Shelly,
Awesome shot! It's been such a long time since I've been fishing, brings back memories. Excellent composition, your brother looks very well focused against the BG too. Good on him for releasing it - what goes around comes around :). Interesting choice for the settings, but they seemed to have worked really well. Nicely taken my friend.


Interesting shot Shelly
The DOF is perfect to render the BG slightly out of focus. Nicely done.
