Beautiful image. The color contrasts are really good. I like how you captured the little guy looking right at you guarding his anemone. Nicely done. Missy #554869

Terrific image! Love the composition, color, detail ... amazing that you were able to capture this while diving! I have a hard enough time on land. :) #3574355

Melissa, Colleen & Robin,

I much enjoyed your feedback on the anemonefish image! Scuba diving is ‘what I live for’ and photography adds a whole new dimension to the hobby.

Superb! Excellent colors, detail, clarity and lighting, Beverly! Congrats! #3600317

Beverly J. Speed 11/18/2006 4:52:54 PM

Thanx, RC!

The colors in the ocean just 'pop' with strobe lighting. What looks black may be a rich, deep blue...what looks brown turns bright red...it's like Christmas opening the images from dive trips.

Much appreciate your comments.
