thats quite a niiice pic in terms of details that you have captured

although the image is a little over exposed, you could bring down some brightness to get more details

Achintya, I liked the sharpness of the image very much :)

Here is something from me -
1. The focus point is on the mid -region not on the eyes.
I personally feel keeping focus on the eye gives you good results.

2. You could have cropped the upper green leaf, or in pp could have reduced the green.

But I liked the image :D

Let Jibran bhai comment :D

the pic has a lot of detail and sharpness

a few changes i would suggest are
- the white balance is off, this can be corrected, by making the pic a little warmer
- the composition could've been more pleasing if the substrate was cropped off instead of cropping the background
- if there was eye contact of the fish the pic would've been more captivating

Both photographs are nice.

The pic is soft due to the slow shutter and the smaller aperture, and the image is dark due to the smaller aperture

I would've shot this in shutter priority mode with a shutter speed of at least 1/80
The camera automatically will meter to appropriate aperture
