i Friday- Confined


I had a lot of ideas for this weeks topic. Maybe its because I am confined in my house this weekend. It is brutally cold for the second straight week.
My favorite idea was depicting a child in a play pen watching his/her siblings play outside. Unfortunately I don't have any models around and it's too cold to round some up. So heres a simpler idea. It's one of those little fish people pick up at Walmart. I feel so sorry for them. I always hope they are sold to someone with a big tank.

Nice composition. Cropping made the fish feel even more confined.

Beautifully done! This is a Beta Fish, I always feel sorry for them too that they are so confined. They say they live naturally in small puddles in tropical climates, but still, a nice big tank never hurt!

Very pretty. The image is so loose and shows your feeling and point of view.
