Hi Jusni,

Amazing sharpness for a 1/20 shutter. Nice colors and the black background works well.

Best regards,

dear Jusni,
its shining golden colors are very gorgeous,
and red & blue edge lines of scales are fantastic too,
maybe its actual fish eye watches 180 deg world including your lens,
its face looks humorous here,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Hard to believe that as such a shutter speed, you've managed to freeze this images, without any blurr, was the fish dead, or pin to a board...)) Well executed...a small white reflector on the top would have open a little more detail on his back, an given extra contours, which are sharper on the lower part of the image.

Hello,outstanding quality in this shot.That fish must have been stationary to come out this sharp at 1/20.Fantastic colors.Best regards Otto.

Hi Jusni,

Very nice presentation really you captured very well.
The shade on Fish is really amazing different colors.
Good POV,

Hi Jusni,
Perfect sharpness here and splendid colors!
Quite a natural shot, taking in consideration, the glass of the aquarium.
Great details in the head of this fish, the scales are beautifully shown with the great use of available lighting.
Very neat work, indeed!
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Jusni
Superbe capture avec un excellent rendu de la texture et de la brillance des Úcailles,ce qui n'est pas du tout Úvident pour une photo en aquarium.Bravo et TFS.Catherine

This is a real screen popper Jusni , as others have mentioned above you seized this one with such perfect sharpness at this incredibly slow speed but hey the result is what counts right , some fish are curious they would come near the edge and litterally stop breathing and watch you motionless ! Still imo you did not need f/25 for this one though , fabulous details and certainly no distraction from the BG , just the fish and us , btw the aquarium glass is kept immaculately clean to get ii all so neat and well outlined , a wow shot ,
My best regards,

Incredible macro shot! Sharpness and details are superb and the light too. Marvellous golden/silver colours and great contrast against the black BG.
Very well done my friend.
