    Really, really nice work! Nice editing, transitions and framing throughout :2thumbs:

    On a technical note, it was interesting how some of the shots are noticeably sharper and clearer, I'm assuming they were done with the 75mm or maybe the 45mm? They're tighter shots, and I'm guessing the larger aperture helped reduce the ISO values needed which makes it cleaner also.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Unfortunately the place a bit let down without whale sharks like Georgia or Okinawa aquarium. The whale shark plan was canned due to protest & replaced with dolphins, which is also under fire.

    Thanks! Appreciate the kind words. :)

    Yup, spot on! The wider ones mostly from high ISO noise & denoising them during editing turns them into mushy mess.

    Amazing and wonderful. It is ... mmmh ... comforting to see places where people can have contact with an environment they would normally never experience. I imagine many children may now consider a dream of becoming a Marine Biologist based upon their experience at the aquarium.

    I understand the exploitive concerns of people, but a well managed aquarium or zoo advances the causes of environmentalists.

    Thank you for sharing and your edits were well done.

    ...and I imagine that at least some of those kids, eyes so filled with wonder and
    huge smiles will be some of tomorrows environmentalists, or at the very least tomorrows environmentally aware adults.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I agreed with GaryAyala & Livnius on how animal conservation may educate & influence children to follow the footsteps of fellow biologists.
