He spends most of his time in a large colt coral but came out for the photo shoot.

This being the photography forum, are you open to constructive criticism of the photo? No big deal if not.

Cool.

I know it's tough to get a moving fish to cooperate and sometimes even just getting the fish in the frame feels like a victory.

Ideally the placement of the focal plane would be on the eyes of the fish.

What f-stop are you shooting at? I find that F9+ works best for macros.

I had the camera on automatic but it appears to have shot at F4.5 for 1/60 sec. These shots were cropped from a larger photo.

Me too!

It would look even better if you were to remove the most obvious specks of marine snow at least from around the fish. I use the healing brush in Lightroom and just click on the speck to clean up snow from my photos.

I agree. I think itís a speck of dirt on the glass and I havenít started using any post shot software yet.
