I shot this at a one day stopover at Epcot at Walt Disney World in Orlando about a week ago.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Mitch

Something is really fishy with this one haha... I really like the idea but I think you should have planned out the shot slightly more than you did. I would have either tried to capture the fish only and lose the background. With the background in this shot being so chopped off, it becomes distracting. I wish you could have gotten in closer on the fish.

the horizon is tilted and the colors seem a bit cold. Also, do you have a polarizer, they work wonders for getting rid of reflections.

Thanks for the replies!

I shot some of just the fish but I'm just not happy with the results. I agree the background is chopped, mostly because typical Disney there was incredibly touristy stuff just out of frame on either side of the pond.

I think the reason the horizon looks tilted is that there is a slanted walkway behind the pond and I didn't crop it out of the picture.

The colors didn't look as cold in Aperture. I think I need to get more comfortable in PP to get the jpg results I'm looking for. Also, I have a polarizer, just didn't feel like pulling it out.
