hey ya great pics that brain is very very cool lookin. with the DOF you can make it deeper aka get more of the coral in focus, if you bump up the F stop setting. play around with the F stop, also called apature, the smaller the number the larger the apature whole opens and the less DOF you get, so inturn the larger the fstop number the smaller the apature whole gets and you get a larger DOF. as you are doing this you will have to use a tripod becuase you will have to drop the shutter speed realy low in some shots. also you can bump the ISO up to compinssate for some it as well. You can also use the setting on the camera called AV it is apature priority which should put more of the coral in focus for you.
