Hello Amr,

I really like the original goby shot. Nice diagonal composition, nice blue water color, and it looks like the eyes are in focus (hard to tell with such a small jpg file).

Those cryptic shrimp can be hard to isolate. I would suggest, when possible, to shoot "up." Not necessarily to get a blue water background, but to give the viewer a sense of being at eye level with the critter.

Cheers,
Zig
