    I think it's a cool photo. :thumbup:

    I did one similar over the summer, my son found a sand dollar and I had him hold it out like that and I focused on the sand dollar.

    Definitely cool. The fish looks as if it's about to pop out of the shot.

    It's underexposed and the horizon is tilted...but otherwise, not a bad shot.

    I like the shot. I think if it was cropped JUST a little bit more and lightened it'd be even better, but I really like it!

    I prefer this type of shot with the max of dof you can get , it seems to make it more amusing . Much better after the retouch
