fresh catch

28mm f4.0 1/125s ISO100
My favorites lure, Joe's Flies Super Striker, never fails to ignite the fish.  Here is a small white bass I landed on Sunday while out for my birthday fishing adventure.  Painted beauty and a fine memory...


  1. Great colors. Sounds like you had a nice birthday celebration.

  2. Great birthday catch. Great photo ! Great memory !!

  3. nice fish -- how did you do that to the photo-- what did the original look like ?
    i bass fish as well.. love the pic !

  4. ps-- happy belated birthday !
    (i just had mine 4-29)

  5. Soul: I use primarily two free programs for editing and manipulating images. and The GIMP.

    This image was processed in GIMP. I used the "oilify" filter to simulate an oil painting of the photograph. Then I did some color enhancing to brighten it and give it some over saturation. Then I layered a "cartoon" filter over it. That added more colored separation and the darker and black "low-lights" making it look stamped.
