Very nice, though the copyright overlay is distracting.

These are some of the best images i've seen from an aquarium. the quality of the images look like you were in there with 'em, no?

OHHH NO WAY!
I am WAY to chicken!
Just through a crowded glass wall. They were in with little sharks, the rays and eels!

Glad you like!

At first glance, very colorful and stunning, but looking at it more closely (at least on my screen) it looks like the top two have a blue color done in PP? Maybe I'm wrong, but they look a little over the top and not quite like the blue color the water of an aquarium would really be. Nonetheless, they all make for nice images.

They actually ARE that blue at our aquarium. I boosted the contrast, but they are in a giant globe type thing with that bright blue color behind them and BRIGHT lights. I waited until the jelly fish floated into the lights and snapped.

I thought those jellyfish and turtle looked familiar then I saw you were a local PF member.

I'll vouch for the lighting on the jellyfish; whoever put the display together really picked out the right background and lighting to make those jellyfish unearthly looking!

I wish the ones in the TN Aquarium had been that brightly lit and the glass & water so clean. It's a nice enough aquarium and all, but it could stand a good cleaning and some better lighting.
