I've got LOTS of photos of these guys, but only a few that I really like. These were hanging out on the 18th century anchors that line Cane Bay. The angles that the fish present make them very difficult to photograph with this perspective. Do you find these photos pleasing? Are the angles distracting? Which photo do you prefer?

I much prefer the second image - the Angels fit much more naturally into the image.

Both are nice enough shots, well exposed and lit, definite "keepers".

I'd like a combination of #1 and #2. The angle of the shot is better on the 2nd, as the Angels get lost against the background in the first. However, in #1, the Angels seem to be in positioned in similar directions, while in #2, they are at odd angles to each other. If you could keep their positioning relative to each other with the composition of shot #2, it's be great.

So, next time, tell the Angels to line up better... :D

Nice job though!
