One of my bettas. I wanted to try to get nice blurry underwater leaves rather than going into the garden. Don't quite know how well I've succeeded but I think it's a decent enough shot.. and I needed to dive back into submitting for a challenge, can't wait around for that *perfect* shot every time.

arrggh, so close to being a great image.. great composition, nice smooth bokeh, but not enough light on the main subject.

Nice idea and pleasing composition but would be nice to bring out the details and colors of the fish a bit more.

the subject is just a tad too dark.

I found that shooting these guys is quite nice as they will just sit there in the water and not move for quite a while. Good color and clarity on fishy and the blurred background works well to complete the shot. You even scored a couple light circles. Nice shot overall but maybe lacking some of the WOW power of other entries.

Unfortunately the fish is a bit dark but the composition is good and it has a nice background.
