Much better than mine..................lol. thanks for posting :)

I wouldn't say better.  Mine may have more close-up detail, but yours have great color and composition.  I haven't found the best settings yet on my Nikon to capture the true colors on my corals.  Still working at it!

For me I love the lens, but have a love/hate relationship with the camera itself.  To get better depth of field, I close the aperture way down to f-stop 36, then use a long exposure (1 to 6 seconds depending on lighting).  I need to turn off the powerheads to reduce polyp movement during the shots, but it's worth it to get so much of the coral into focus.

Can you tell me the name of this one?  I'd like to find it.

This is a GARF Bonsai. I got it in July from Mindblowing Corals down in Denver. This coral has been around forever!!! Watch alk. swings tho!! I had a nice colony back when I had my 300 and my stupidity killed it 😞
