I'd like to take this opportunity to thank acroporas (William Heaton), MikeVeitch, DeanB and diveh2o (Roger Kirkpatrick) for taking the time to offer very useful suggestions and also james and eric for their kind feedback.

You guys all ROCK! :lol:

I've just been informed that the photos have been posted at Forbes magazine.

For those who missed the first thread, this was a shoot on southern bluefin tuna aquaculture off Port Lincoln in South Australia.

To paraphrase a certain (legally) blond to whom I was introduced by my lovely girlfriend - It was the FUNNEST!! All you metrosexuals won't have any trouble deciphering that. Oh wait... Mustard's probably the only one who'll get it with his newly installed Cosmo brain B) :lol: :D

Thanks again guys.

Is there a Mustard on Tuna joke here somewhere?

Congrats Anthony!

That is so cool! Those are some shots 99% of us will never have in our portfolios! Great job!

Ken - you are waaaay too generous!

I'm sure if you'd been there on the day you might have got some better shots than me.

I don't think I'm being overly generous. Most of us can get to destinations like Cayman, Indonesia, or the Galapagos, but I can guarantee very few of us will ever end up taking photographs from inside an aquaculture farm. The closest I'll ever get to that much tuna is the rows of little tins at the grocery store! :lol: :lol:
