This lined seahorse was an easy find even in poor visibility  This guy almost seemed to glow up against the dark background.

Great shot of a school of Bat Fish - what lens did you use?

Love the composition and blue background

Good Job!

message Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your comments...

I used the AFS 12-24, not the best wide angle I'm getting some nice results with it.

The original was shot in landscape as there were a few more fish in the school, but I decided to crop this group as their formation looked kind of interesting....

Thanks again.
