clown fish

I took this photo because I wanted to see what sort of picture quality I could get through a glass window. I am really pleased with the outcome.

You've made your Sony cybershot work hard on this one considering the strong lighting coming down from top left and shooting through glass.

It a good colourful image and record shot for you. Not quite sharp enough in all areas and I'd be tempted to crop off the area of harsh light from the top of the image.

This makes the really colourful fish stand out even more.

On the plus side, you have all of the fish in the frame and it's moving towards you. However, because it IS moving, you need a fast shutter speed. Focus on the eye and if the fins are blurred, that would be ok, but the eye and hopefully the face should be sharp. You have made a good effort because this isn't an easy subject. You are shooting through glass, your subject is red (difficult to get right) and it is moving. Is there any way to reduce the amount of light in the tank? If not, you need to compensate for its brightness.

Very good shot, always difficult to photograph moving fish in tanks.
I would suggest using manual focus (if you camera has this) to enable you to focus on the fish and not the glass and focus on the eye as Pamelajean said.
Good shot all the same.
