..still from last weekend’s trip to pensacola..
..obviously the pier was also meant for fishing so it was cool to find this bait on the planks.. not that i’m into fishing or anything like that but the funny thing was that i haven’t seen or touched a bait like this yet (i just used worms & various bugs).. it’s consistency felt so real, lifelike and like sashimi.. it’s good i had the presence of mind not to munch on it.. 😀

Your capture is superb, but I can’t stand seeing a hook in a fish or the bait. I hate to see anything die.
Love the color in this and the red eye is a terrific design element. I thought it was some sort of dead animal when I first saw it. Terrific shot.
superb capture!! lovely use of DOF 🙂
oh… the poor thing. :p great shot! 😀
excellent !! surreal or surrealist- much better tha n reality anyway- and the light incrases this effect
Very soft shot, nice bright colors and great DOF!
Looks very sharp(pun intended). DOF works well.
Tastes like Benihana…lol…great idea. I like the light and color in this shot. I’m soooo in Pensacola in my mind right now!
It’s quite an attractive lure. I like how you handled it and its setting. Fine shot.
Excellent composition. The opposite of horizontal and vertical lines in a perfect DOF and POV.
haha. that’s an awesome piece of lure. must be a lot bigger fish there than i’m used to. creepy ol’ big red eye on that thing 😉
Great idea, it’s a twister?
really funky shot, great bokeh!
If I were a fish, that’s scare the hell out of me! Nice shot!
Love the color and shallow dof. Wonderful detail!!!
Wonderful capture and great idea – it makes me think about Miro paintings.
Funny shot. The way it’s perched up there just cracks me up. Maybe there’s a giant fish that is trying to catch humans. Good thing you didn’t bite it.
Great shot. Good thing you didnt eat it or you would have been hooked instead of the fish! 🙂
Looks yummy! Excellent shot!
Don’t think I’m going to venture out what flashed through my head when I first saw the pic… But great dof and composition… Cool picture 🙂
I’m wondering what percentage of your presence of mind would have to be impaired before you DID decide to munch.
Being cold and wet here, your beachy shots from the past few days are serving only to annoy me. Though I do like this shot and the humorous quality of it, I do not find your tongue in cheek Pensacola references to be seasonably charitable.
if there weren’t anybody around, i’d have probably ventured a nibble or two.. hehe..
well, it’s cold and wet here too for the past few days, the weekend was just an exception.. and during the winter, i think southerners (is that what they’re called?) have it good.. 😀
lol you’re not seasonably charitable… you fiend!! lol and WHAT did they shove that hook into???
perfect DOF … and so amazing colors
Now I can see it was a teaser for the next post 🙂
You could also have shot with a deeper field, I guess it would have made an interesting composition with the vertical pole and the horizontal bait, both with bright colours.
Bring out the bbq!! 😉 Really interesting and eyecatching shot!
Love it–hook, line and sinker.
Cool shot, love the shallow dof!
