Hi Erwin,
A nice capture of this giant turtle from such a low POV. The light management is perfect and the details are fine. One can notice the swimming movement of the animal.
Well done for this neat work.

Good clear shot Erwin,taken through Aquarium glass,its textures are sharp & detailed,not the easiest of shots to take successfully.


Hello Erwin, I thought that you were in possession of an underwater camera!!!
Excellent sharpness considering that it is obviously taken through glass.
Even though there is a lot of light from above, there are still lots of details of the turtle to appreciate.
Personally, I have never had much success taking shots at aquariums.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Erwin,
Good photograph, outstanding sharpness, outstanding composition, good lighting.

Ola Erwin
Good perspective and good sharpness-
um abraço

Hi Erwin,the pov looking up towards the surface has added a nice light and sparkle to this one. The details are clearer than the head shot. Fiona

Hi Erwing,
Nice capture. Usually it i snot easy to get a good image through the glass in an aquarium. This one is pretty good, no reflection from the glass and the image is very sharp and clear.

Hi Erwin

This one jumped out at me from your recent gallery. Sharp and a good upward pov with excellent shadow detail and lighting. Natural looking colour & the yellow green color of the turtle contrasts well against the blue cyan water. Tfs!
