[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photographying underwater, I guess I couldn't help shooting clownfishes. I guess the clownfish is one of the most popular model to any UW photographer partly because it stays around the anemone he lives into so that even when diving conditions are at worse, find yourself an anemone and you'll have something to shoot.

Of course everybody will think of Nemo, despite these two are technically not the same clownfishes. Disney's Nemo hasn't done any good to the clownfish, there has been an increase in clownfish for home tanks at the beginning of the year, which means more wild clownfishes caught even though most come from tank breeding. So pls don't say N*** to them again!!!

In that dive, current was picking up, the group of 6 divers we were exploded into the drift. While my buddy was holding to the wall, I found an anemone where those two clowns were also struggling with the current, you can notice how current is pulling the anemone tentacles towards me.

The thing about current is that you never know were you're going to surface and if the boat will spot you easily, hence the use of inflatable "hotdogs" buoys we carry in our pockets. I was happy I had one this time, since we were some 100m away from the boat.

Another one of your amazing under water shots Luko. Colours and light are well captured, as always. Thanks for the note too, a good point. I had heard that about the clown fish too actually, that it has become a bit of a problem since Nemo. Every child want's one...

Beautiful, beautiful...

What a wonderful world you share with us. Excellant UW photography your images are favourites in our salty household.

Neat and powerful colors for this ammazing capture of the daily underwater life. Very dynamic.

What a wonderful picture. The anemone is so beautiful and so are the clownfish. I haven't seen the N*** movie, but I must try to one day soon. Thanks for sharing a bit of your underwater world. It is great.

You are really making a wonderful undersea (would submarine be a better word?) serie here Luko. The sharpness & smoothness of the image, the unusual colours, the way you framed them all... Definitely a fascinating image again! Thank you.
[It also would be nice to see all of them, next to eachother, in a new theme]

this shot is way better than the Finding Nemo movie not a big fan I saw it though, anyways- I truely enjoy seeing all your underwater shots this is another great shot. I don't know a lot of exposure and lighting dealing with underwater photography like how far you need to be without blasting it; I guess first I need some scuba lessons :)

incredibly beautiful picture, Luko!
nothing to add but to thank you.
thanks for the notes too.

superb capture luko... better than the walt disney copy, and living as a free fish;-)) lol colors and light are great . what was he depth when you shot this one? do you remember?

This is very cool, Luko. I have not seen N*** but have seen these fish before and I do think that they make wonderful subjects. I also like the darkness throughout as it makes the colors jump out even more. Nothing really to nit pick here...this is excellent underwater photography.

bien vu on se croirais dans le monde de nemo belle photo , le neteté parfaite amitié coolpix

Nice and clear. Love the fact that the fishes are actually lying along the anemones tentacles. Great POV and composition.
