underwater photography should get its just rewards..just for the equipement you need ..
this is a sharp and well lit..despite the flash..i assume it was well off camera...and simulates the sunlight angle which would exist in this shot

Excellent portrait!

This portrait is a good addition to your other full length pictures of lion fish.
It is sharp and well exposed. I like the directionnal lighting that amphize the head and still give shadow details. Thight cropping and composition is well balanced. People should pay attention to detailed features around its mouth and the long venomous spine.
Great portrait and TFS.

Hello Krzystof! Iīm happy to find your beautiful gallery of underwater pictures, considering I also love to dive and take photos. Well, I donīt have all your pro equipment, but a tourist Nikonos V. Most of my photos are chrome and still not scanned.
I found this photo first to write for because I like the Lionfishes too much, despite its dangerous poison. I knew the doctor who take care of the divers injured by this fish in Sharm el Sheikh and I heard that accidents are commom night diving, specially. And the pain and treatment are very hard. Well, you probably know it all much more that I know, so letīs talk about your photo! You found a nice POV, facing the fish. I also like its position on framing. The colours are very natural by the good exposition. The only thing that itīs a pity here is the suspention everywhere, making the image a little bit dirt. Anyway, a great souvenir from Egypt.
All the best!
