Crazy looking fish, but nice image. The different colors and shadows add a lot to the picture.

Getting a shot as clear as this through glass is wonderful, or do you have a fancy, shmancy underwater camera? I do like this, I am just wondering if having your subject right in the center is the best presentation.

nice scorpionfish, more of a closeup of the markings would add more impact.

this is a cool picture but the main focus really is not on the pattern at all. Maybe a closer shot or a different angle could help
