5. Purely angle. A polarizing filter would do it too but

I don't have one.

Yeah, I know, everybody is laughing now cause I don't have a piece of gear . . .

16. Could you use polarizing sun glasses in a pinch? If you could not get the angle right?

You could brag... Yup, shot 'em thru my RayBans!!! dude...

4. Damn right, my dear flamin lib!

This photo goes beyond sharpness into another dimension altogether.

So gorgeous! Love the motion, the colors, everything...

8. Yeah, it's all about the motion and fluidity

of the Koi. Just enough definition to identify. I like shooting this kind of stuff. Like the smoke you just have to make exposures one after the other and see what you have later.

I think that's why I enjoy wildlife. If I can control it I try to sometimes to the point of obsession. Shooting stuff that's just dumb luck is like a relief.

9. I hadn't thought about that but it would fit.

With the temp index being at 110f for days at a time I was thinking of something melting . . .

12. Mesmerizing!

I have to admit that it took a second or two for me to recognize the fish. Great work, flamin lib!

This is my favorite so far. I am wild about all the colors and the abstract look.

Gorgeous......just gorgeous.

I appreciate your talent and thank you for sharing it!
