ah Colin this is so, so much better then my post of a simular shot. Is this indoors or out ? The water is so clean , well done mate.
chunter: Sorry, I was in such a rush when I posted this I forgot to write an intro. It's at tropical fish aquarium in Wiltshire. The polariser really came into its own for this one. Thanks for your kind comment.

Fish! My Favourite subject! How'd you do it and could I do it with my Digimax 3000?!
chunter: Hi Sue. Per separate email, yes, it should be possible. First you have to be near a tankful of fish. If you are out in the countryside amongst a load of brambles, then no - you won't get goldfish.

Having found your fish, try a little body-swerving to find the right angle to minimise the reflection on the surface. Well that, or a polarising filter! Also ask the niice fishies to swim near the surface. They're an itinerant bunch, but if you scatter food, they become very accommodating.
