Fresh Salmon anyone?
12-SEP-2006 BJ Ramsay

Fresh Salmon anyone?

Russian River, Kenai AK

I worked this shot in Capture NX, except the resize and conv to JPEG
which I did after printing. NX appears to have some great capability but its
going to take some learning!

Re: Gimpy above, here he did actually catch a healthy large salmon which
he promptly carried away from the stream, across the boardwalk all us
photographers were on, and into the woods, probably to ensure that no other
bear got eyes on his fish.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF
1/750s f/5.3 at 230.0mm iso500 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
