Default Transparency-To The Sea!

This image was taken at the Vancouver Aquarium. It was a real enjoyable experience watching these sea turtles....

Can't even tell it was shot through glass. You were on the outside of the glass?

Wow...through glass AND water. It really looks like it's flying. No glare, nice job.

Having wasted several hundres if not thousands of shots trying similar effect I can say this is a very good job.
Great going.

Thanks everyone for your comments!
And yes, Selvin, it can be trial and error when shooting through glass at an aquarium. I find the most frustrating part is when somebody stands behind me and I don't realize it as I'm taking the shot.....then I have their reflection in my image...hrmph!!

Aquarium shots can be really tricky. I have tried some shots at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport and the results were really BAD!!
