Photographer's Note

This is one of the first underwater photos i ever took, so will always be one of my favourites. It was taken at a depth of about 20 metres on Jackson Reef in the Tiran Straits off Sinai in Egypt. At 20 metres down, you lose a lot of colour, so most pictures look blue and grainy - specially if you don't have expensive equipment!! What i like most about this picture is how the colour of the bright orange anthias has been picked up by the flash. I think it looks great against the background of sea and coral. I know that "technically" it isn't a very good picture, but underwater photography is pretty difficult so i think i did OK for my first go!

Following advice and a workshop from a fellow trek earth user (richtersl), I have reposted this picture slightly larger than my original and after some slight modification in Photoshop Elements (i applied "Auto Levels"). Hope you like it!
