Pacific Ocean´s life is colourful. There are fishes you can´t forget to catch with your lens if you have a chance to dive with a camera. This is the Coral Grouper, nice and colourful. We saw plenty of them diving Fiji Islands. This one I caught diving Taveuni´s Somosomo Strait. Isn´t gorgeous?

Olá, José. Gosto muito da foto.

Excelentes e vívidas cores. Também gostei da nitidez e da saturação.

O bacana da natureza é isto: é bela, rica e variada em qualquer lugar.

Um belo espécime, uma bela foto.


Hi Jose,
Great shot! I love the vivid colours, especially the red and those iridescent blue spots. Lovely details and beautiful background. Very well captured! This truly is a gorgeous fish.

Gorgeous is the word, wonderful colours that pop out at you. Small nit: contrast seems to be very high, maybe the light was a bit harsh due to the flash, no idea, I have not yet tried out under water photography.
Great capture!

Hi, Jose.
It's very nice photo. Fish is very colorful for diving photo. Good composition and background.

Wonderful shot! The colours seem to jump out onto you, I wish I had the chance to take pictures under-water while I was in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. The underwater species are beautiful and overlooked! The details and sharpness in the picture are perfect, great job!
