Shot these on a recent trip to Greece (did only one dive).
Any idea's on how to improve these shots?

On the first shot, you have a nice separation between the subject and the background and the wrasse is positioned nicely with good focus on the eyes. The shot would be better if you hand angled yourself so that the entire fish is in the frame or if you got closer and filled the frame with the head. The tail being cut off detracts from the shot.

For the second shot, you would be better off getting in front of the fish and shooting at a slightly upward angle rather than this downward angle. This image also would be better if the fish was not cut off at the bottom if the frame.
