Costa Rica, Fisherman with a Broomtail Grouper (Mycteroperca xenarcha) lit with an SB800 off camera flash and edited in black and white

This is one of the few valuable fish we caught during our trip to Costa Rica this spring. Is a beautiful Grouper, and an excellent game fish. I took this photo with the D90 and the Tokina 11-16 f2.8, using an SB800 through a Lumiquest Softbox III as off camera light. Even though the original image has a beautiful blue sky, I prefer the B&W conversion because the animal doesn't have an interesting color at all.
