Interesting pictures - the one of the star fish is really unusual.

Geir, Great shot of the star fish.Is this your aquarium? If so I would like to see some more pix. My son has a marine tank and here is aNemo picture from it. I have found it quite difficult to get real sharp photos because the fishdon't understand the nuances of modelingand the glass causes some distortion. Yours, however, is really sharp.

Hi Glenn.

I`ve given up to take pics in my indoor aquarium. Just too little light to make desent shots. This shots were taken outdoors in a small plastic tank. The marine wildlife was caugth by my daugthers in a tidal pond nearby our holliday house. Great fun for them and for me.

Your shot of the Nemo fish is beatiful.

geir,
nice shots. i've had good luck with the lens placed and set right on the glass. you don't have too many composition options but that's why we have cropping. i think the starfish would gain a lot with a little more PP.
