Default Cartoon Fred: The coolest goldfish in the world.

I know these aren't the best photos but being an amature photographer I could never get satisfactory results attempting to shoot this fast moving bugger in his odd fish bowl. It's not your normal clear glass, but it's rippled in a rustic sort of way. There is poor lighting in the office so I had to use high ISO's trying to minimize the long shutter speeds I needed to catch this fast moving bugger which gave me lots of noise in my photos. When I tried to use flash it was a disaster with the reflections and washed out images. I did some cropping and resizing to save web space, and played around a bit with the levels on the second one. Any advice on getting shots of goldfish in their odd glass bowls? Cartoon Fred is a celestial goldfish who's eyes at an early age develope pointing upwards as you see from the pictures.

This one is my favorite. I love the composition. I might play around with it in photoshot to see if I can liven it up a bit. Feel free to work your magic on it if you want

Your webpage is down due to too many hits. May I suggest hosting your photos on something a little more robust?
