WOW, Simon! This just couldn't be any better! You should make an offer to the aquarium for this to appear in their literature! ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!

I don't know how you managed to get all the people out of the way to take this gorgeous shot. I have been there and it hard to shoot right now.

Congratulations on this awesome shot!

Thanks Candice, Linda, and Dibyo... I appreciate it. Linda, indeed it was a very crowded place. I managed to sit against the wall in a dark corner with my hand-held camera ready waiting for intervals, and I was just lucky to get that shot :)

Absolutely stunning. Her expression, the colors, the scarf, the circle with the fish....amazing.
