It's quite rare to see a yellowfin fringehead in southern california

F18, 1/250th, ISO 320, 60mm lens + 1.4x teleconverter

I like how you can see the details of the invertebrates surrounding the fringehead, including the bryozoans to it's left, and the tunicates in the upper left corner. Maybe I'll crop the bryozoans when I get a chance.

Here's some more photos from our incredible macro dives this weekend. Enjoy!

I like the framing.
Nice shots on Smugmug as well.
How big a fish is the Fringehead? 2-3cms? Looks like our Secretary Blenny but they are about 1 cm.
You have a D300? So you start with an ISO of 200? Why did you choose to shoot at 320?
OK, I gotta ask, how much cropping :?
