Ignore the backscatter, I'm still using the internal flash. I'm mainly interested in what you think about the composition.

This was taken using a Canon PowerShot A200.

I like the composition, you can see a fish in a pipe. If that is what you wanted me to see then it has worked.
It is a nice, simple picture. Good catchlight too (flash highlight in the eye).

If you crop it down to a portrait then it tells a different story but will show greater fish detail.

A couple of books for reference I would recommend are:

Jim Church's Essential guide to Composition ISBN 1-881652-18-1
Learning to see creatively by Bryan Peterson (land based) ISBN 0-8174-4177-8
