message this message is importantDear Jacopo Thank for your latest submission to the UWP contest smile

You've requested a critique of your photo. How it works :
I will structure my critique into a few chapters and will list some suggested solutions to problem zones ( if there are any ). My critique will be like 2-3 posts in total, please wait with any answers until you see the note 'photo critic completed' - thanks smile

As we photo critics do this job as volunteers, a 'thank you' is always appreciated (no 'thanks' = no more critiques ).

Photo critiques here at UWP are meant to give a helping hand with an analytic review & to suggest solutions. The objective is to see you here as winner one day smile

And here we go ( critique/review starts with the next post ) !

message Photo Critique : This image is very interesting ! The subject matter reminds of a large storm moving quickly overhead.

First impression ; The image as I stated above has a swarming effect to it. I like it and it does leave the viewer wondering which way did they go.

Technical 4
Exposure : 5, Colours: 4, Sparpness: 2, DOF ( depht of field ) : 5, Contrast : 5

Suggestions :
I have not really any suggestions ..maybe a bit of sharpening but I think you have done what you can do for any image like this. In other words good job

Composition :The image is well composed with regards to the subject matter. I like the way you have captured a definitive line between the schooling bait ball and the edge of the reef.

Im sorry if I havn't been much help but there is not much more that I think you could have done. Please keep posting your images....Looking good!!!!!
