    Pretty pics. The pygmy fish is very cute, though it would be nice if the tail was not cut off. I'd crop a little off the top of the pic to make it feel more balanced. The last photo is the standout for me. Stunning, and very sharp (on the parts where it's not moving). I might try a square crop on that last one.

    Were you scuba diving for these?

    Not only cool looking subjects, but really nice shots as well.

    These were taken at my local dives sites in Cockburn, Western Australia and the visibility on average is about 4m maximum and is very slity / milky with lots of floaty bits so it is hard to get decent images at time.

    Beautiful. I especially love the feather duster worm.
