practice and patience!

After about 100 shots of various things in my tank I am finally 100% happy with this shot! (OK maybe 200-300 shots). Anyway I couldnt hold the excitment in any longer and wanted to share! Hope everyone likes it!

I agree. That is a very nice shot. I know the feeling of taking 200 pictures to get ONE you are really happy with. Photography is like that, especially in a reef tank. Soemthing alwasy swins in or out of the shot just as press the shutter $%!*( !

My camera is a Kodak EasyShare Z-740. I used the scene option for close up moving objects. I found this the best shot to use cuz the camera is an auto focus (booo...gotta upgrade that!) but in this option the camera will focus on moving objects within 24 inches of the camera and not at the glass (or the "spots on the glass" But this is surely worth the multiple shots it took to get it!

Thanks for all the compliments!
