Lighting is weird. If you cut it in half horizontially you could get rid of some of the overexposed body/rock (and have a nice web page or power point border pic.) Composistionally, the eye feels too centerlined for me (or not enough on the verticle.) Maybe more negative space around the front of the fish or less of the body/rock horizontal lines (or maybe tilt them some.)

Hey, guys! I suggest trying to get the Image Improvement Center going again. It's precisely for this sort of thing.

I'm going to move this forum topic over there.

It would be helpful if you could include information such as camera/lens and lighting used.
I am being harsh now - its a blob with an eye - don't be discouraged, I shot my fair share of "blobs" - with this type of subject you can take your time and think about composition and angles, lighting etc.
My personal preference is to use say a 45 deg angle to show more of the face rather than the side, it allows some depth and character of the subject.
You can see some images of mine here:

The images above were from a muck dive - if you have a nice background such as a reef use it as the attached example shows.
