    I took these for a friend (his tank) and thought they came out well. I only shopped two of these because I WAY overexposed them.

    All of the shots of the corals/anemones are very good, I'm not sure where you were going with the top half of the tang though.

    The lighting in the tank is really odd, and while those things look like they are stable they move like crazy so I had to keep the speed fast... I tried lightening them in Lightroom but it seemed to remove some of the "pop" that the pictures have now so I left them alone.

    these were taken with a 28-135 btw. If I got a 50mm f1.4 I could get them to lighten up a bit, but the wife won't let me spend the monies :wtc: (although I really shouldn't anyway, so it's not completely her fault)

    Aquarium shots are WAY harder than one would expect. Actinic lights make things a lot more difficult as well because our eyes don't pick them up but they're necessary for reef tanks.

    I find myself filling my 1gig SD card(with my cheap P&S camera) and coming away with 2-5 decent shots that I like. Most of the time they're pure luck, although I'm sure some nicer equipment would help that out a bit, manual focus would help a lot.
