nice composition, TFS Ori

Hello George,
Something unique here....A fascinating image with very nice colors and perfect exposure. Excellent image with lovely light and best clarity. I like especially the contrast against the dark background and the superb vivid colors. As usual a perfect photo.

Hi George,

Thanks for sharing,

  • Great

Hello George,
I must admit at first glance I thought this was a Lionfish, but I now see it's not. Super job of photographing it in such fine detail and perfect exposure. Love the black BG. Superb work!!


Fine shot and the black BG makes the small image loom from the darkness! I like it very much, but wanted to do a WS to see how fabulous the fish (focal point) might be ... doubtful that it will be an improvement over what you have presented.


I liked the way you have framed this shot, sharp image of the fish, lovely. tfs.

Simply Great Shot, George.
