A common scene along the pristine reefs of Marovo Lagoon in The Solomon Islands.
The Solomons are a true wilderness paradise, the last frontier for travel in the South Pacific. The reefs have some of the greatest biodiversity in the world and since there is very little tourist infrastructure, the islands are a dream destination for those seeking real adventure in the South Seas. Monitor Lizards roam the beaches, shark callers still practice their ancient art, and dense rainforests cloak the slopes of smoking volcanoes. It's a stunning landscape both above and below the surface of the sea.

I just dont know that there is anything you could do to improve this fantastic image other than a crop to remove the 2 fish in the bottom right, but then that may result in loss of some depth.

A stunning photo, the depth of the image is amazing.

this is a really nice shot, with a vantage POV, with the big fish in front and centered and the others forming a tunnel around it
very nice colours and sharpness

A very common situation, but not a common photo.
