Salmo Trutta Again

When I first get a roll of film back,  I give the twelve frames a quick once over, and I know instantly which frames will be scanned or printed right away and then there are other images that take a while an grow on me after a while.  This photograph was one that fit into the latter group, because I first made this photograph about two months ago, and I keep coming back to it every time I look at the roll of film.  When I first got the roll back I thought it wasn't sharp enough and a little over exposed.  
So I scanned this  photograph of this lovely brown trout that my friend James caught a few months ago, and that I shot using the macro lens for my Holga.  I kind of think that the lack of sharpness is how trout see the watery world the live in. What do you think?

My first reaction too Brian. And like you I kept coming back and looking some more. There's something explainable.

Thanks for saying that Howard! I think you mean unexplainable though?
It seems lately that you are the only one commenting on my stuff and I appreciate that.
