[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another of my u/w pictures from Fiji´s Taveuni Island, diving the Somosomo Strait. This particular fish is very commom in this Pacific Ocean´s Islands, and you can not find it in the Atlantic waters. The clownfish lives between its anemones and doesn´t go far from it to keep itself protected from predators. I´d just cropped a very little bit ahead the fish, because the finn is to tight in the frame. Colours and lights are original. I used a macro gear plugged to the 35mm, but since I don´t like to use frame gear for it, distance and frame position was estimated and it´s difficult to do it underwater, where things aren´t where you see because of the mask lens and air between the subject and your eyes. Hope you like it! Cheers!

Hola José Augusto,
Muy bella foto submarina, tal vez un poco corta a la izquierda.
Me gusta el colorido y los detalles de la anámona y escamas.
Es afortunado al hacer esas tomas subacuáticas, ojalá las haya aprovechado bien.
Gracias por compartirlas con nosotros
