Ola Jose!

Underwater photography - one of my dreams... Dark mood, great colours and first of all - very interesting subject in good pose. I like colours of this fish, especially orange mouth.

Hi Jose,
Excellent capture!
Very clear and sharp details,
the colours are also very nice.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Jose,
An excellent shot on this Grouper. Your flash exposure looks great. The colors are beautiful and well saturated. Detail is very sharp. The overall composition and framingare perfect in this very clear water.
I hope to get to go to Belize and dive someday.

Excellent shot of this grouper Jose. Sharp detail with very good exposure, color and DOF.
Well composed - Well done! Thank you.
