[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These fish belong to the same family of Sea Horses and are common in all warm and temperate seas.Pipefish have a long slender snout with tiny jaws and the body is covered with an armour of bony plates. Interestingly the female deposits her eggs in a brood pouch on the body of the male which then receive nourishment from the male's bloodstream. These fish pictured here were washed up on the beach after a high tide.

Hi John, interesting shot of these stranded fish. I like the way you have caught the light to bring out the range of sombre colours on the their bodies. The rock makes a strong, contrasting background and some of the sand grains look almost gem like. Cheers, Steve

This shot has really captured my eye, the colours compliment eachother very nicely, and you've gotten the exposure perfect with great contrast. Overall you've captured a very clear, good quality image.
