Great, super, terrific. On its own its a great picture, the dof really draws me into the scene and as the theme is topical its better than great.

sorry, but it reminds me of the film...

Dory: Hey Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you wanna know what you've gotta do?
Marlin: No I don't wanna know.
Dory:Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.
Marlin: Dory, no singing.
Dory:Ha, ha, ha, ha, ho! I love so swim. When you want to swim you want to swim!
Marlin: Now I'm stuck with that song!. Now it's in my head!
Dory: Sorry.

Very nice 3-D looking shot! Not a bad placement either.

Quite stunning. DOF has worked really well here, I even like that the second clown is out of focus. Excellent shot! 10

Y akow what... for once the "overuse" of NI works well for me here! So does the boosted saturation. The shaloow DOF brings my eyes back to the fish. It seems totally magical! 9

Though too centered a composition the colors are great! and focus/DOF is wonderful All this through glass. Excellent work.

great saturated colours. I find the two corals that are blurred to be very distracting though. Because they are so big they draw my eye away from the fish. 7

why did someone DQ request this????? stupid. Anyway, too much saturation for my taste, but a good capture nevertheless.

Unbelievable!

The colors in the photo are beautiful. The composition feels a little "off" for me - kind of "busy" on the bottom half, and feels somewhat empty on the top half.

Well done. Graeat colors. The fish really stand out.

I love how the fish on top is looking at the camera. I'm not sure the DOF should have been so narrow, maybe a bit more wide. Great lighting and color.

Wow! Fabulous colours. Amazing clarity.

You got some really vivid rich colors here, and they don't look oversaturated at all. Nice work.

Great DOF, Wonderful colors! And I love how the little fish is "posing" for the shot!

Awesome colors. Looks like I can reach out and touch the little creatures.

This is really beautiful. Exceptional saturated colors, compostion and depth of field. There's maybe just a bit of sharpness that could be improved, but overall a real eye-catcher that I think will do really well in the challenge. Congrats on a job well done.

This has a really cool 3D feel to it. I like the use of the shallow DOF here. The framing with the foreground out of focus objects is really what gives this the 3D feel for me. Excellent colors! Good Luck!
