Shark Bait

This photo was not manipulated at all, other than a little brightening in PSE. This is how it was taken in camera. The room I was standing is a glass tunnel with the various sharks, swordfish, and other numerous sea creatures swimming in a walk-through tank all around and overhead. This capture was as I angled my camera lens up some so that I caught the water with the opening to the outside area, along with the inside tank with the shark swimming and the guests watching the shark. It turned out to be a really neat illusion and appears as though the people are standing on the side of the wall and the shark is kind of free floating out of the water. One of my favs from this exhibit at the Dallas World Aquarium. Kind of like a fun house.

f/3.5; shutter speed 1/60; ISO 500; 14 mm
