Finding Nemo

An overcrowded tank of percula clownfish. It's sad to see the aquarium do something that can cause such stress on these little fish. Contrary to their cuteness, these fish are extremely territorial towards each other.


D-Lux 4, ISO 200, low Kelvin setting. The camera took an incredible sharp image with brilliant color. I cannot stress enough how pleased I am with my images.

Thanks for the nice comments. The colors show very well because of the Kelvin adjustment on the DL4. The lower Kelvin, 2400 for this shot, neutralizes the blue of the water making the true colors of the fish stand out. That was a big reason I bought this camera. Canons have an underwater and aquarium and underwater scene mode plus an underwater mode as a white balance option, which are all good. But the Leica has a sliding scale just for Kelvin. So I can adjust it specifically for each tank. It is quite unique.


You can achieve good results by using a sunset scene mode, if your camera is one. The more reds/yellow you can get in the white balance the better it will neutralize the blue.
