I try in this picture to give to non diver friends an idea about what is diving.
This was taken with Nikon D60, One YS110a, 18-55 Nikors lense.

The photo gear was the same and the fishses were very close.

Give me advices please!

your first shot looks like it has good exposure & color.

I think you could benefit from picking a colorful close-up foreground subject, and buying a wide-angle lens. schooling fish will also benefit from a wide-angle lens

look at some of the compositions and subject selection in these chapters:

Well, thanks! I've already read those tips (after coming back :roll: )
I look for a sigma 10mm FishEye (which is the only one fisheye with autofocus on the D60), I hope I will improve some tips ;)

It was the second time I came in Egypt to dive (I dive since last year in fact). Now I hope I will do a better job in Mexico this summertime.
