Very nice. I tried at the Tennessee Aquarium, but did not turn out as well through the glass.

Well done. A very nice shot. Do you know what part of the world they are native to?

Very well done! I have tried my luck at SeaWorld but not with that caliber of results. Very nice!

They're an Australian species, found mostly off the southern and western coasts.


Currently just a P&S, but watch this space.

Nice Contrast and the sea dragon is very sharp which is hard to do in low light areas like aquariums. What was you're shutter speed and ISO?

Sweet shot- did you have a CPL on to cut down on any reflection?

According to EXIF, I shot this at 1/80, f/4 at 1600ISO. I didn't use a CPL filter for this shot either

Yes, Australian, actually out in Port Phillip Bay, where Melbourne is. Sadly they are endangered, probably a few factors, a busy port which brings in non native species through ballast water, pollution, I suspect the recent dredging of the bay hasn't helped and of course, poaching.:(
