Nicely done in my opinion, Matt. You might wanna head over to this month's contest for a related challenge.

Re: Fishy Picture

Not sure what PSD stands for - did you work with Photoshop? Love the red-faced fish, and the wavy/curly plant in the middle particularly. Cannot imagine working with 100 layers!!!!

Re: Fishy Picture

Its a nice looking picture. my feedback would be that while is very cleanly and meticulously photoshopped the image itself is rather uninteresting and not composed with much interest. I'm not a fan of the bubbles coming out of all their mouths, and the fish seem to be just copies of each other. It might be cool to ad some reflection and shine so it looked like you were looking through glass of a tank. Maybe even a reflection of a persons face looking into the tank.

I disagree completely

The fish are very similar but not exactly the same that makes it cool.

I think ANY reflection what so ever would ruin the image as it looks you're inside the tank now.

Love the image

Re: Fishy Picture

I'll repeat, nicely done. Not to mention the fact the all of the object images were "taken" with a scanner...

Re: Fishy Picture

Thanks for al the response!

punkjumper, I agree that the picture is kind of uninteresting but, Its supposed to be intreguing in a boring way if that makes any sense? The fish arn't copys of each other and are all slightly different. I also think that if reflections were added it would ruin it. It doesnt look as vibrant on here though (probably the low quality jpg).

And thanks to all that like it, I hope to do more with more interesting looking fish but I need to find a source of recently deceased tropical fish!

:-)
