  1. I didn't say fish eye lens view :) 

    This one from a couple of years ago. I was working it for a possible print.

    D4, AF-S 80-400
    1/1000s f8 ISO640

    That looks like a Rainbow Trout, thought they only went after Salmon.
    Great photo as usual.
  3. Outstanding image, top notch work Dan.
  4. Thanks, West. That's a pink salmon(aka humpy). But they'll eat any protein they can catch.
    Thanks, Louie.
  5. Everything about this shot is good..

    Excellent! The curve of that unfortunate salmon adds the finishing touch.

    Stunning image! It will make an impressive print!
  8. Awesome picture, one day I will go.
  9. That fish have a bad day!

    Great image...
  10. I think I remember this one from a couple years ago. I especially like the clarity of the fish's eye.
  11. Amazing catch for both of you!
  12. Thanks, Bob. Even a blind squirrel finds and acorn once in a while :) 
    Thanks, Ann. Yes this shot is all about that poor fish. As a matter of fact I've titled this one "Humpy" which is the Alaskan term for pink salmon due to their backs becoming humped when they morph during the spawn.
    Thanks, Karen. This one will do well on metal.
    Thanks, Mike. They're just a plane ride away.
    Indeed the poor fish is in for a rough couple of minutes. The bears don't bother killing them before they eat. At least this one is already spawned out so had fulfilled its mission before being caught.
    Thanks, Mike. Yes the fishes eye was my point of focus... Well at least it was in the focal plane :D  I've posted some similar shots in the past but I don't think this is one of them.
  13. Thanks, Dossy. It was fun for me but a bit more important to the bear :) 
  14. Those water drops are amazing too--they really give the sense of action!

  15. spectacular shot Dan with amazing clarity and 3d look
  16. Thanks, Nick. Yes the water adds a dynamic aspect to these shots of the bears fishing.
    Thanks, Randy. For some reason I find that 3D look that we see on screen is hard to replicate in print. But IMO it comes out better on metal than any other print media.
  17. What a tricky title...and your shot is gorgeous Dan!
  18. Maybe my career should have been in advertising rather than engineering :D  Glad you enjoyed the image.
