    here's some more pics

    it's a non co2 tank, but putting 200w of light over it soon brings on the bubbles.

    i've used f 2.8 for the first to try and create something a little more arty.

    Gotta admit the first one does nothing for me, but the second and third are great. Do you put a blur on the background in PS?

    Surely it's the lack of depth of field in this case? :crazy:

    I appreciate that, I was asking if Mark does any processing to the background as in a few of his pics he has a 'streaky', paint brushed look to the backgrounds which I like

    Thanks Andy. :D

    it is an awesome bit of kit. it does has a drawback, as in it just does 1 thing. a lot of £ for a 1 trick pony.

    I don't mate, I let the lens do the work.

    The first image, was intentionally abstract. I understand, not to everyone's liking :D
