An almost great shot. The hot spot at the bottom right is a bit distracting. I think that could be addressed with dodging/burning (never can remember which is which) in PS.

I love the composition and the way the fish form a circle. The larger fish looks like something from a bygone age. Is that some kind of shark?

Thanks, calr. I'll play around with PS to see what I can do. No, that fish is not a shark but I don't know what it is. Next time I take my son to the aquarium I'll find out its name.

That big fellow looks like some sort of rockfish. Nicely done the hot spot aside this is a wonderful job.

Thanks, selvin. I'm playing with PSE to see if I can get rid of that hot spot.

Personally, I think the original is better. In this shot, there is too much blue which is just as distracting if not more so. If I get a chance, I'll give it a go and post my results.

Hi Cal, I agree w/ you and I must say PSE is not my forte! Usually I do not post process my pictures, reason why I have a hard time working with PS when I really need it. I'm curious to see your results! thanks.
