November 2020 - French Angelfish

About the Image(s)


This photo was taken last week in Cozumel, Mexico. I used a Canon 5D Mark111 with a 100mm macro lens and 2 flashes. I usually use a Mark1/V but it does not seem to make much difference if the ISO is low. I used ISO 160 and 1/200th for all of my photos the entire trip. That way I keep it more simple. The F Stop was 7.1.

Nice and sharp shot of the French Angelfish, as well as the orange coral below the fish.   Posted: 11/11/2020 12:21:04

Nice shot. For me, the orange coral is distracting and takes away from the impact of the fish.   Posted: 11/15/2020 14:01:01

Wish I could something half as good as this, but I guess I'd first have to learn to swim. Beautiful image.   Posted: 11/18/2020 15:38:28

So colorful! Beautiful image with both the fish and coral in sharp focus. I like how the orange coral leads the viewer to the eye of the fish.   Posted: 11/19/2020 15:10:07

Very nice, sharp shot. I love the colors and the way you captured the Angelfish, it gives the impression that it is looking at you. I like the orange coral as it depicts the fish's natural environment. Good capture!

The only thing I would have done differently is to crop the bottom area a bit to bring more focus to the fish. My eyes tend to travel there.   Posted: 11/20/2020 10:49:26

Nice French Angel Michael. What is your lighting on your housing as you have a shadow.   Posted: 11/22/2020 13:58:15

More diffused light might have softened the shadow. Otherwise, this is an excellent photograph.   Posted: 11/30/2020 21:50:49
