To put it figuratively, there needs to be a 'cake' firstly- a prominent subject that captures the attention of the viewer. For eg. one of your previous photos had the lionfish. Even though it was not well-lit, there was something for the viewer to focus on. Start with that, then work out how you want to compose it, light it etc... or add in other secondary subjects.

i think its not wide enough.

the foreground takes up alot of the picture (almost 2/3) and seems to suggest there's something interesting in there. so i hunt and search but nothing.

plus the shadow top right looks like something of interest, but alas, i can't make out what it is. is it a manta? or a catamaran? heh.

i tink if it gets wider, it will be more lack of focus...........

the foreground is where my subject is.....however, as i have tried to take in the whole scene, it has contributed to some confusion as to wat is the subject.....

the shadow in the background is my secondary point of interest.....it is actually a shadow cast by a hill on the surface......i did hope that it can be that of the manta;)

thx for your comments....:)

perhaps the main subject is the yellow sponge coral and you were trying to place it using the 3rds rule. If the yellow sponge was more exposed (brighter) , your pic will have more focus.

not trying to hijack ur thread, but at least give you some idea.
