[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was lucky and patient enough to catch these two male anthias fighting. They are either fighting over females or territory.

I take all my underwater pictures in RAW and then if needed I adjust the whitebalance and exposure in Adobe Camera RAW.

Hard to tell if they are fighting or kissing at first. Beautiful capture-sharp, well-exposed. Great detail and colors. Impressive timing on your part, Peter.

Hi Peter,
Great capture with splendid colour. I like the offset fish in the frame placed aginst the clean blue. Great to see a D200 going under water.
