This image is spot-on :-)

Works greatly as desktop wallpaper.

It is just a matter of framing, not perfect, so it might be worth doing some cropping out (or cloning out?).

The half fish in the bottom-left part is somewhat distractive. Re-framing could be tricky as well, because of the coral branch on the left, which could un-balance the frame.

Wonderful! Things have been getting a bit stale around here lately. Thanks for changing it up a bit.

Maybe, just maybe, a little looser crop would improve things slightly. Hard to say for certain, but possibly including the entire fish at the bottom would have been nice. Not a biggie though, and it might not even make it better. This will make an awesome wallpaper.

The fish is a Copperband Butterfly Fish.

Nice clean/sharp image. Became my new wallpaper immediately.

I grew up in Monterey and love to go to the aquarium. This fish is called a Copperband Butterly fish. I used to have one in my own saltwater fish tank. Hardy fish to have at home, but they eat a lot.

A little more cropping might help. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the input! I was also torn by the crop, so essentially I just resized it for 16x10. I'll have to play around with it a little more.

Jeff, I wish I had the rest of the fish in the original! Too much Photoshop for me ;)

looks like some sort of Angel fish. Good job on the shot though. Nice and clear.

MAybe more fish can be added to the shot.

An excellent photo, and it's now my wallpaper. It reminds me of the wallpaper called Follow in Windows XP.

Perhaps the crop could be a little better, and it would be nice to see a photo with more fish.

It's a fish! We never get fish on here :D

Exceptional lighting and colors; perfectly balanced visuals. Very, very nice.

Just one problem: resolution. It's a wonderful image; however, on larger screens, the lower resolution starts to show.

I had to register to post and I've actually been using this site for a long time without registering, this is THE BEST wallpaper I have EVER used in the 14 years of using a computer. I'm either really stoned or this actually looks 3'd on my macbook pro 13" screen. I love this it's amazing. THANK YOU!
