Bubble Coral and Fish


I have to admit that David showed me that the Canon G10 images could really be enlarged and still hold detail. For the most part this is true. At the moment I shoot at max wide angle and shove the camera as close as I dare to the subject. In this case I did so. But this tiny fish is barely visible on the coral. And to get the fish and eyes so focused sharp, well it is blind luck. There is no way I could ever handhold and focus this shot. So my hat is off to the engineers who set this autofocus up. I do indeed point and shoot. It turns out my efforts get me a reasonably high percentage of good images. And the best news is that it is all for fun. I have a day job that is less random and demands perfection. I can do that too.
