About the Image(s)

This is actually a sea anemone, part of a series of aquarium photos that I took with my macro lens. ISO 800, 60mm, f3.5, 1/5 sec. They are animals, but remind me so much of dahlias! I have another one in group 79 Fine Arts.

Shooting creatures in an aquarium can be quite difficult to light and to remove unwanted reflections. I like the diagonal composition of this image, and is helped by the arrangement of the tentacles, the centre of the anemone makes a strong centre of interest. I would be inclined to tone down the purple area on the top left as it draws these from the anemone.   Posted: 09/13/2021 05:51:32

Excellent aquarium shot and avoiding glass reflections. Nice diagonal shape makes for a nice composition. I do agree with Jon, that bright area does pull. your eye.   Posted: 09/15/2021 12:58:51
