Well, there was a pointer for you: I didn't know what I was looking at and now you said what it was, it's still not speaking to me. Can't you take more shots of it, from a different angle maybe?

Haha, he wouldn't?

But what do you think yourself about this picture?
And were you just using your wife's camera only for this time or are you planning to use it more often?

Buy another camera and start having fun together.. You'll be a natural before you know it.

Images in album are fine, but the small size makes then difficult to comment on. They look at bit grainy which might be very high ISO noise, or just poor jpeg quality artifacts.

Just took a look in your album and I like the colours of the Nemo fish and the colours in the background. But I'm missing a bit of focus though, I guess that's because you've shot thru glass and that makes it always a bit more difficult.

I'm afraid to say that the same shot might have been better with a higher quality lens. the out of focus areas aren't very smooth and draws the eyes towards the background, confusing the viewer.

I would also be tempted to 'warm' the photo as there is a very clear blue cast caused by shooting through water. Removing some of the colour cast will make the colours of the shot more appealing.

i think its cool. im used to the el cheapo point and shoots. so this is new for me, i have a saltwater tank of my own that i will probably have to use her camera for when i get it up and running again. ill probably take a tons of pictures of my tank when its back up again as its almost 6x the size of her fathers. i also like taking pictures of our daughter and of our dog. so yeah, ill be using it alot i suspose and thats why i need to learn all the cool tricks
