Went to visit some friends in San Jose over Memorial Day weekend, and they were nice enough to let my girlfriend and I use their guest passes to the Monterey Bay aquarium...

Colorful and interesting. I find it tough shooting in an aquarium and you look to have done a good job.

Shooting in an aquarium is certainly an exercise in patience - lol. Moving targets behind reflective glass (read: glare) definitely requires a lot of waiting for people to move out of the way so you can sneak in and get a good angle, and a lot of wasted shots due to weird reflections.

And while I still use auto-focus most of the time, I find that manual-focus is often the way to go so the camera doesn't try to focus on the glass instead of the fish.
