I think my camera is fine for what I'm trying to do. It's like the article I found. The guy was using a Cannon camera similar to mine and getting a great shot compared to the really expensive Nikon D200.
Way at the very bottom they compare the two cameras.

I think your picture is really good. Don't beat yourself up over those professional looking tanks.
One would be a 'professional planted tank keeper' and the other probably a 'professional photographer.'
I bet they couldn't keep a tank full of fish alive if you wrote out all the instructions in a step by step account.
Well done - wish my photos were as good as yours.
There's more to fishkeeping than meets the eye.

Your tank looks great Punisher!
As for the pics, have you messed around with the setting on it or just done point and shoot? You can change the ISO and aperture on most of them.
And comparing those pics taken with the point and shoot and the professional, I actually think the point and shoot pic looks better, LOL.

I have found that an ISO of 400 and an aperture of 3.2 works best for my simple Kodak Z712IS. I also put the camera in macro without flash and put extra lighting onto my tanks or edit their brightness and contrast in a photo editing program. I think that definatly for a point and shoot cam your pic is very well. The only way to get professional images is to invest in professional photography equipment and learn how. But it is a great looking tank...you could probably avoid that white blurr by tilting the camera down at a slight angle."Have no fear of perfection- you'll never reach it."

Yeah. I've got my background a lot better now so i can add extra back lighting if need be.
The tank is almost ready for another picture. It hasn't grown much but I think i'll try and see if i can't improve on the quality of even the shot I took a while back.
I have an Anubis that's a day or two away from flowering so I suppose i'll wait for that...even if it'll be so small in the picture you may not notice it.

Maybe, if it was a competition with loads of money on the line, otherwise I think I'll stick to the amateur method. That's a lot of effortAs I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.
