Hello Loot !
What a wonderful fish ! I love his bright colors and his markings, they are really very beautiful. You have done very well, because I know how hard it is to take pictures in aquarium, through glass. Details and colors are fantastic, and a beautiful composition. Very well done !

Beautiful fish. Great in colours and sharpness. Seems as there is no glass between it.
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful:
the Lord God made them all. . .
Your beautifully coloured fish brought this song to my mind, and now I can't get it out of my head!
Super capture Loot. Perfect colours and sharpness. And it has come out so well through teh glass. Good one my friend,

It's good to see a fish like this. Most people sent in butterflies, flowers, birds etc.
You caught this one very sharp and colorful.

That's a really clever shot of this Angelfish through the glass. You've really got the sharp details of the pattern and the superb colours on this fish.

Wow, Loot. I need my sunglasses on. : P
The colors are absolutely briliiant, and the designs are exquisite. I love that light blue outline around the eyes and the edge of the body.

A singularly beautiful specimen, Loot. What an attractive collage of colours and patterns this majestic Emperor displays on its well-shaped body! These priceless gems of marine life from you are a unique contribution to this site.
How you manage such immaculate underwater images is a tribute to your extraordinary gift as a photographer.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

I have to hand it to you. You've achieved excellent results. My experience at the aquarium here nearly devasted me ;) 95% of the shots were a wash..
Wonderful color here and excellent use of you flash.
Very nice work mf!

Your notes are very informative, it's always great to learn about new species.
Such a beautiful palette of colours on your Emperor Angelfish, vivid and sharp. Even the background have some soft but colourful additions. Nicely framed and composed. I'm glad to see you back Loot.

Hallo mijn vriend.
Welke verbazen die vissen kijkt. Zeer mooi kleuren en detail. Enkel verbazend de verscheidenheid van het coloruful leven dat onder de oppervlakte bestaat. Dit is één van mijn favoriete vissen - het is zo mooi. Zekere Lord wist wat hij deed toen hij alle vogels, zoogdieren, insecten en bovenal de vissen creëerde. Deze fotodegenen bewijst opnieuw dat u een uitstekende fotograaf bent. Dankt nogmaals voor een dergelijke prachtige foto en dank voor het delen.
Neem goede zorg van zich.
Hello Master of the Flash ;-)
Your pîcture of this so colorful fish is awesome!!! The colors look so natural! And what colors!!! Even the bg is as much colored than the fish :-) I understand why this fish is named emperor: a great dignity is coming from it!!! I'm always astonished by how the nature can bring those so wonderful colors within a single individual!!! The only negatibe point IMHO is that you cropped too much the picture (but maybe it is a full size picture...). The fish is a little bit too squeezed...
Great picture and TFS, Loot!

It amazes me how well you have captured these aquarium shots. That is superb camera work to flash these shots thru glass and get these results. The colors are stunning. Nice sharp detail, and not a hint of flashback or glass glare. A really great job my friend! Beautiful shot. As usual, your notes are also superb.

This is a beautiful capture of this colorful fish. You caught great details with excellent exposure and nice DOF. Maybe I would have leaved a little more space around him but it is a matter of personal taste and as it was taken in a aquarium, I guess that the POV was limited… Nice shot with very interesting notes. Thanks for sharing,

fascinating how you managed to demonstrate the brilliant neon colours of the Emperor's markings that seem to be glowing in the dark in spite of other bright colours around - exposure and flash very well managed, my friend!
The deep emerald, purple and blue colours of rocks or sponges in the background look a bit surprising - as if oversaturated, but obviously there seems to be a very colourful mixture of other organisms in that aquarium.
The fish looks very intense, and pictured in a very naturalistic, perfectly well describing way.
With best regards,

Hello my friend, how are you ?
It is a real pleasure to admire this superb aquatic shot here. The fish is lovely and original. Colors, sharpness, DOF and background are excellent. Instructive note too...
Bravo Loot and TFS.

It is great to see you 'up and running' again. I can imagine a little bit how frustrating it must have been for you not to be able to go outside and spend some long hours in nature. But I am sure that now that spring and summer are arriving all will be better and the great trips will follow. But, you already got your first good trip to the aquarium. Great work on the quality considering a really thick peace of glass needs to be concurred. Great colors and posture, and the flash helped greatly to illuminate the stunning colors and shapes.

A colourful and very good looking fish!
Maybe he's a bit grumpy, but who cares with colours like that...
Very well exposed, difficult conditions isn't visible at all!
Well framed in a classical composition!

A wonderfuly nice acquarium shot. The colours in this fish are weirds, amaizings. Details captures despite the glass in front are excellent. The flash light not disturb fish eyes? In Argentina acquarium are prohibited flash light use.

And your notes, so very detailed. Fascinating work.
Were you in the water with it? Or did you put the camera
flash with the glass?
You are quite a characture. Love ALL your photos!!!

Still busy with your "Ichthyology" gallery and this Emperor is a beaut. Once more your amazing ability to isolate the fish from the surroundings is brilliantly obvious in this shot. The colours of the fish is striking and showing those fluorescent like blue lines so clear. The focus is perfect and every single bit of detail is visible. The more I look at your fish photos, the more I would one day like to visit the aquarium with you just to watch and learn how you go about taking such lovely photos of this 'not-so-easy-as-it-looks' subjects.

I really like this image, and I think this is an excellent and most colourful shot with lots of amazing details .The colours and patterns are beautiful, and looks as if it has been painted by hand. Especially the stripes above the nose and over the eyes of the fish. The blurred, but still bright coloured corals that you used as background is just great looking, and adds speciality to this lovely image. You have managed to capture this Angle Fish with great clarity and if one would not have read your notes it will be difficult to believe that is actually captured through aquarium glass, as it seems as if there is no glass between it. Your excellent photographic skills and know how is once more proven here. Thanks for sharing.
