very well done. aquariums are notoriously hard to shoot well, so you've done a great job with this. Very nice clarity and sharpness. a little more contrast wouldn't hurt, but it's nice as it is. I'll be looking to see what lens you shot this with.

Lovely shot... did you try using NeatImage to remove the noise, and also a little USM for sharpening?

Looks like a lion fish to me. I got stung by a Volitan Lion about a week ago...NOT fun. Anyway, Very lovely photo. Your focus and clarity are great, color is perfect, and I think that the lighting was definately a key factor in great focus and color. Everything about this photo is excellent. I work for a place that deals with salt water fish, so maybe I'm partial, but this is a 10 from me. Congrats. ~Heather~

Awesome color and focus! I really like this one. The subject is centered nicely. Did you try any head-on shots? Might have made an even better composition. I think this one deserves a 10.

Great Colour, but I am pulled to the left because of his eye, rather then to the centre
