beauty, sadly i cant keep bettas as my yo-yo loach would rip their fins to shreds.
personally i would have cloned the floaters out of the dark background but great shot regardless.

Thanks, the Bettas are best in their own setup. The floaters are you referring to the white dots here and there? i actually did clone alot of them, probably missed a few.

yes mate, just distracts ever so slightly from the beauty of the fish. great job. just lookking at the pic on flicker and if i were you as there are no comment s on the picture as yet i might be tempted to re edit the shot and upload it again to flickr then edit your original post on here.
the specs are mainly to the top left and underneath to the left of the fish. thats the problem when photographing fish, if you want them to stand out there are so many things floating in the water that the eye doesn't see it can be troublesome when it comes to editing.

I just might do that. I think i was doing a lot of cloning and my computer gets very slow with that tool in LR, so I just ended it.

I was looking at your flickr as well (very nice stuff), Speaking of black backgrounds are you suing the flash as the only light or are you post processing. In my pic with the Betta I used the adjustment brush in lightroom and blacked it out. I don't have Photoshop.

what i used for the black background in my pics is a black glass table with multiple flashes in different places and different settings and edited out the nasty bits in PS CS6, the trouble with editing software is the need for a decent spec PC i.e. plenty of RAM and a good quality processor otherwise the software freezes and takes an age to do what you want it to.

That's pretty much it. i need more RAM, otherwise it's a nightmare. Harder to use OCF to isolate under water. Thank you for the info.
