Default Cory Allowing a Photo

My fish don't generally hold still long enough to get a photo, but I love trying....

stop down your aperture a bit more to increase your DOF, That way more of the fish is in focus. About F8 should do it with that shot.

Yes, Cory is a cute guy! Shooting fish through glass is challenging, at best. You did good. I played with the pic a few minutes in PSE 4. Auto smart fix, some saturation and desaturation and a little sharpening. The length of time you spend on a picture depends on the degree of importance you put on the pic. I always do SOMETHING, even if it's only levels and contrast. Hope ya don't mind.

Sharon,

Yes, please do. You really got it right - the eye staring at you from inside the tank. How thoughtful of you to give it a name (After Rachel Cory?) Keep posting
