I shot this yesterday, having tried to capture glasseye sweepers in the past with little success. In camera, this photo looked like a winner, but now i'm not sure if its just too cluttered with no real solid subject to focus on. Shown larger i think it works better, but small i have a hard time seeing the detail in the little fish. Can I get some honest straight-up opinions if this photo works on a professional level.
and i'll throw in another photo:
does the fact that we speared & ate it after detract from the photo - as most people know, lionfish are an invasive and ecologically damaging force in the atlantic. we have a govt sanctioned culling program allowing divers to obtain a license & spear them, hopefully avoiding the mess they've created in parts of the Caribbean. its scary to see how these things can just obliterate every small fish on a patch of reef in a short time - and it tasted gooooood.
