The Biggest Trout, ever

    Newer Older

    So some of you saw an earlier post of this fish taken with a first generation digital camera. I just found a scan of a slide we took with my Nikon F4 film camera, seconds later. My EV setting was at minus 1 and it made for a poor color shot due to underexposure and over-saturation. In PhotoShop, I managed to fix it up at least to the point of being a viewable image. I quite like the composition. Thanks to Craig Blackie for taking this shot of me with the biggest laker I caught, ever.

    Nikon F4s
    Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 AF-S ED Zoom-NIKKOR
    Set at 17 mm
    Fujichrome Velvia slide film
    -1.0 EV

    Sea Moon, pilupax, Francisco Villa, and 48 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      It would be a shame to not have a "good" image of that laker. I'm glad it was salvageable.
      Also, nice fish !!
