Very cool...you can't see that the fish are in an aquarium, they just look like they are swimming around....I don't know where? Nice shot! #40434

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

Nice shot, Jean. The fish almost look like butterflys in the air--good eye! #119326

It's so cute the way the little girl is pointing.
Very good job on the exposure as it looks like this is a difficult light.
Nicely done.

Just wonderful, JF. I was thinking exactly what bill said- great job with a difficult exposure! :) #119478

Jean-Francois Schmutz May 26, 2019

Thanks a lot for your kind comments, Margaret, Murry, Bill and Kathleen !
You're right with the difficult exposure, but sometime we must press the shutter button, and not think to much about some expected overexposed area,I'm glad you like it on this way :)
