Image is very sharp and well exposed with subtle details in shadows and highlights. Shallow DOF isolate your fish beautifully from the BG. I love the diagonal position of the fish.
Excellent work and TFS.

Another excellent presentation of the underwater world, lucky you, I'm jealous of your adventures.
Great shot, nicely exposed as always and good composition.
