My thinking on this shot is that if you could have gotten a bit more side lighting, you may have been able to light up the lobster's claws. For some reason, I want to see the claws in this shot.

The out of focus open polyps in the upper right I'm not sure about - of course, it's hard not to get some in the shot.

The sclerites in the dendronepthyea look very cool.

thanks these are my thoughts exactly but I have limitation of my equipment I'm afraid, I shot in F8 this is the maximum F number I have in the Olympus c5050z and I need an external strobe (its in my christmass list :-) and I hope to get one in a few months)
