Glowing in the Dark
I like the silvery color of them....
but focussing is a bit out of range especially in the face areas, choosing a wider diafragma would be better I guess...
nevertheless this image is very attractive..
oh ya, good use of available lighting too and info is very useful....TFS!

great shot of the two arapaimas, ben! :-)
there doing some parallel-swimming, aren´t they? *g*
the silvery glow is awesome as is if they were made of metal.
good sharpness on the bodies, slightly soft focus on the faces
which is ok at 1/40 with a moving object i guess, and the
flash worked well, through the glass, good job.
well done & take care, thorsten.

A good double fish portrait with an interesting note!
I like the framing here, and difficult exposure conditions well taken care of!

Nice shot through thick glass. Well done and seen. A good example for me to try the same thing. TFS.

Other friends told all things about this beautiful shot. I like very much silver colour. They looks like silver-made. Thanks for this nice photo.

very nice double take on this shot. Very well timed and cropped so the fish are very well place in this frame. Nice sharp details even through the glass and the metallic color comes through very good. Very well done.
Good picture because was taken in poor light conditions, having a glass in front that produce distortions. Focus is not optimal but is nice the image.
You write no flash used, but if you see in photo info says flash used. It´s a mistake? I thik that was fired.

The Amazon teams with this fish. Great food.
The clarity is of EXCELLENT quality.
The sharpness is so superb that I can see the scales
Your notes are highly educative.

Fajnie wysz³o to zdjêcie. Dobrze wykadrowane. Ryby wygl±daj± jak odlane z metalu.

Very nice picture. Ive never seen - or even heard about - this kind of fish! Nicely captured and great light control! Nice details on the body, though head is slightly out of focus. I guess that is due to the movement of the fish and the fairly long exposure. Im impressed that you got such a sharp photo at all in that light!

Wow, Ben, what a fantastic capture! These fish don't even look real, they almost look metallic in nature. Good job shooting through glass, I've posted a few aquarium shots here (we have a huge one in Atlanta now) and it is difficult to capture well.

Hi Ben. Good shot of these interesting fish, fancy growing up to 3 metres, would feed a lot of people. Good clarity and colour. Off to Kalimantan next week, hope to see some wildlife. TFS. Murray.
Hi Benyamin intresting image of these silvery fish, looking at the large scales of both fish they look sharp so the blurr of the head is probably due to movement. I think you did remarkably well through thick glass.
Did you clean it 1st and were you in contact with the glass? and was the flash held away from the camera?
TFS yours Robert
