This was taken on Tiran, Sharm in June 2004 (depth approx. 20m).

It was my 1st atempt of UW Digi Photgraphy. My only other experience was with cheap, basic point and press 35mm.

Setup used :

Canon S50
Epoque ES 150-DS


I'd be grateful for any tip on how I can improve.

Hello,

Welcome to Wetpixel and thanks for posting your image.

For a first attempt, I think it's pretty good. It's a bit light - next time I would try a higher f-stop and/or less strobe light. The exposure isn't bad though.

For composition, I think it could be better if you'd gotten down more - onto the level of the anemone fish. It's always more captivating if you look the fish in the eye, and you generally get a better background when you do this.

Cheers
James

Thanks for your feedback James.

I'll try to keep it in mind on my next dive with the camera.
