Hi,

This was on my third dive using a UWL-100, and the first caching some kind of school fish.
I think I should got more closer, but my main propose was to compose it and using some strobe light.

The first one got some more light from strobe, but i think the compose is poor.

Another question: Should I have the surface line horizontaly to the viewer?

Both photos were taken at Berlengas Island (center of Portugal).

Thanks for the replies

I like the diagonal composition. Schooling fish can be tough - you want to get real close, try to have them slightly facing you, and maybe even have another subject of interest in the photo.

Here's some schooling fish underwater photo tips.

Good job not blowing out the highlights on the fish, they look like they will easily reflect the light.

Hi
getting close to a subject is the most important in underwater photography.
You got the school of fish, and when you look at the picture at home you definatly remember the dive and it was and thats the great part about it.
Keep on shooting !
Kindest Regards Willie
