Is it a Fish or is it Art?

  1. Hi all,

    Took these during a trip to Monterray Aquarium as part of our recent California holiday.

    All handheld with the D200....

    Do they work for you?

    I welcome your comments, and suggestions.

    Good shootin
  4. These are "Art by Mother Nature", just beautiful!!! I love the Monterey Aquarium - I could live there for days shooting.... it's quite a place behind the scenes too. If you ever get a chance to see the documentary about how the place works, make sure you see it.

    Great shots!

    nope, I think Jellyfish are marine invertebrates in the Scyphozoan class:)
  15. Blimey - I can't argue with that!
