Sneak by tanikel Sneak by tanikel

Name: Clownfish
Date: November 14th, 2008
Location: Mote Marine Aquarium at Sarasota, FL
Conservation Status: Least Concern

Did you know? Surprisingly, all clownfish are born male. They have the ability to switch their sex,
but will do so only to become the dominant female of a group. The change is irreversible.

This is a pretty flawless photograph of the tropical natural environment. It is easy to imagine this on a postcard as it will definitely appeal to tourists.

When I look more closely at Nemo, I am amazed by the clarity. It is such a sharp image that the minutest finer detail is visible.

I like the depth of field as well, the focus is on Nemo but you aren't excluding all of the habitat which is good in my opinion. I think that good depth of field helps the realism in a photograph and by showing a primary object in sharp focus along with the object(s) it may be interacting with it all helps create a story in the photograph.

To conclude, you have shared with us a very interesting photograph and I personally am envious of you for having the opportunity of being there to get this shot.

It is a good picture. I think that the flawless detail of the picture makes it all the better. I think it may look better with more background. I also enjoy the bright flashiness of color. It is very apppealing. I think otherwise it is flawless. It has high detail, color, and it is not blurry. I know I hate blurred photos. I also enjoy the appeal of the fishes pose, it adds a little bit of character so it is not 'blah...' like most clownfish pictures I have seen. Other then that it is a flawless piece. Good job!

Thanks!  I didn't either until I started looking up random facts about them.  I enjoy learning new things about animals, so I figured I might as well share the love.  ;)

That sounds like an awesome time! I suck at snorkeling, so I don't think I'd be able to see them like that. Dx

Thank you so much! I've found it challenging to get good fish shots - been spending some time these past few days of my sister's tank and no luck. Dx

Awesome clown fish photo. It's very clear and crisp. It reminds me of the movie Finding Nemo. :) I love the details of the sea plant.
