I have been taking pictures of my Koi pond and cropping them to see what I could come up with. Here are a few examples.

Nice effect.

If you ever want to cut through the reflection of the water an shoot the Koi, you're going to need a polarizer. It's the only way.

Thanks Hiroshi, I have one but I was just trying to get the distorted effect. I like the way the pond edges are done in your photo. Nice Koi also.

TCook, I like the lights in 1, but it has too much "its the top of the water look." 2 is interesting and I'm wondering about the flames. What is that, the carp, but the wave in front of the flames. I'm lost in that one. 3 is definitely my favorite. I couldn't care less for most abstract paintings, not so with abstact and clever photography. Shame shame Hiroshi. Where's your saki... have a sip. I liked #3 this morgen... before the Cuervo. The light and color from the fish bending with the waves. Its pretty neat:-D There are many times a polarizer isn't obligatory mitt wasser.

Didn't i say "nice effect".....I merely suggested the polarizer for future shots if he wanted to take clear sots of the Koi. That's all:blah::G:G:G

dang, I missed that. It must have been up around that COOL! yellow vibrating thumbs up thingy. What can I say it kept grabbing my eye. I'm sorry. :evil: aranoid:

TCook, I'd like to see more of that type of work.

I love the reflections of a Koi.
Forget the polarizer and hard flash!
We tend to make "dead sharp" pictures, but that´s not all.....
