Editor's Comment: "I'm not from UP but i like this one. It shows the blue skies with cloud formation which draws the eyes more to the background than the real subject. A novelty in composition."

light set-up: one strobe with a snoot fitted with red gel above & behind the prawn, one small softbox on the left side and a small gold reflector directly below the subject.

did some color enhancement and contrast adjustment in lightroom. also did some minor detail "fixing" in photoshop.


Prawns are crustaceans, belonging to the sub-order Dendrobranchiata. They are similar in appearance to shrimp, but can be distinguished by the gill structure which is branching in prawns (hence the name, dendro=“tree”; branchia=“gill”), but is lamellar in shrimp. The sister taxon to Dendrobranchiata is Pleocyemata, which contains all the true shrimp, crabs, lobsters, etc.

As used in commercial farming and fishery, the terms prawn and shrimp are generally used interchangeably. In European countries, particularly the United Kingdom, the word “prawns” is far more common on menus than the term “shrimp”, which is generally only used in North America. The term “prawn” is also loosely used to describe any large shrimp, especially those that come 15 (or fewer) to the pound (also called “king prawns”).
