I think this is a great animation.
The fishes are really moving realisticly.
Maybe sometimes a bit too rapid.

But why are the big fishes so blurred? And somehow the background looks weird.
The small fishes are also great, how have you done all of them?

Nice animation. You've really got the movements of fish down here i think. Perhaps the fins need a little more transluscence / transparency? Should the scales be brighter? Petty thoughts really. Nice one!

hi guys,
focus, hatem : thanx guys for replying
SinaiSpirit: yes you are right, the fish needs better lighting, specially on the tail and fins, may be i'll rerender the diffuse and specular again with better lighting
enape: thanx for the comments, actually i got a less blurry render but that blur is from post dof. the small fish is a particle system, it has speed and drag apllied to it, when it reach a target, a wind influences it for a few frames with zero force and just turbalance to simulate the wild turn, then it speeds in another direction. i dont know why does the bg look weird actually, i thought it would be good using just different shades of blue
PhilWilkinson: i agree with you, the fins and tail need o look better better
