Close-up photo of an image of the tube feet of a sunflower starfish - Aquarium Forum
Saltwater and Reef Photography This is the photography forum for the SW section. It's a dedicated forum to post pictures of some of the things in our tanks, pics of new additions, as well as for great information exchange, tips, tricks, and overall just discussing cameras and photography techniques of our tanks. Learn all about apertures, f-stops, ISOs, macro, flashes, white balance, and anything and everything else that drives us crazy to get a masterpiece shot. Feel free to show off your tanks in here, and plus its a great way for humble people to nonchalantly have their reef tanks nominated by the other members for Tank Of The Month. Don't be shy!

Close-up photo of an image of the tube feet of a sunflower starfish

The photo below is a close-up look at the tube feet of a sunflower starfish (Pycnopodia helianthoides) as it crawled on the inside of a glass aquarium. I took the picture over 20 years ago and recently had the original Fujichrome 50 slide scanned and digitized. As always, the scanned image needed some work (you can see the unedited version on my blog). This is the final result after editing with Photoshop and Noiseware.

Happy Halloween!

Very cool.

If you wife isn't complaining about how much attention the fish get, you aren't doing it right!

I clicked on the Flicker link, and then accidentally looked through the whole album! Amazing stuff.
