Great shot; good colours and fascinating detail; I tried getting a shot of these fish in an aquarium, but they were so shy I ended up with lots of orange blurs Smile

A beautiful shot fantastic colours and amazing detail - I tried one of those disposable w/p cameras whilst on holiday in Oz last year - you have never seen anything so bad - so I am especially impressed with this - wtare must be amazing in the Maldives. Magic

Thanks for your lovely comments.
Ketch,
If you ever want to try underwater photography again try to get a dedicated digital such as the Olympus 770mju. I use it as an extra but it more than holds its own. The disposable film cameras will always be very blue and blurry. I know, I've been there. The digital gives you so much more and of course you can take so many more without feeling you're wasting film.

Wow, superb shot.
Bought myself a cheap disposable underwater camera the other day for the hols. From the comment above I reckon I'll have a bit of photoshop work to do on the shots Smile.

I like the colours, anemones and fish, but overall I think I'll go against the grain with my thoughts on this one.

I find the fish in the foreground a wee bit too dark and the coral in the top right too bright, giving an unbalanced feel to the image.

I don't know if you could crop the top right coral, and brighten the foreground a bit.

Cheers

Thanks Rob, I've added your suggestions as a variant.
I do agree with your comments and the crop improves the pic I think.
I'm wary of doing much to a natural history pic as it is often against the rules for salons and I often try stuff out here to gauge reactions.

Great shot Penny; I love the details and definitely prefer #2 and the more intimate feel from the tighter crop
