Every pic I take of my GBRs look photoshopped?

Does this happen to anyone else. http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9owdx5j9.jpg the only thing I did to this picture was crop it.

What are you using to take the pictures?

It looks like a combination of reflection and your camera failing to properly process the image.

I have an iphone 5. It can't be reflection as every pic looks like it.

When I say reflection I am referring to the way the light reflects off certain scales. Often it reflects in some scales more strongly than others which can make the photograph look inaccurate. Dealing with this is one of the challenges in photographing fish.

Is it possible to turn off the post processing on the iphone?

Maybe but I wouldn't know how. It's literally only this one fish. It doesn't happen with gold rams or any other fish.

Also the fish didn't use to look like this and it doesn't happen at a fish store. Maybe it has something to do with my new fixture.

Definitely could have to do with that. Does your new light have more in the blue color spectrum?
