When diving at Grand Cayman recently, I found this nice coral formation.  Fish feeding around it, sun in the background but somehow, I just felt like I did not take full advantage of it.




The general idea of: 'GET Closer', did not pan out so well.  When I would get closer, the fish would back away and behind the coral, leaving a less interesting photo.  Then I would have to back way off for a while and let them return to the coral head area.


What improvements do you suggest?

Learn to dive with a rebreather and the fishes will come to you.

Anyway, the picture looks good as it is.

It's a nice shot. Try not backing away but staying there and I find the fish return to their patterns. Just don't make any fast movement and try to breath slowly.
