Pegelli image: it's obviously a growing tear in the fabric universe. We have to send a spacecraft and button it up before it sucks everything into itself.

Went to Ripley's Aquarium with some friends. Quite a place. The glass and moving water distorts everything, but not in good way. So I ended up photographing signs and banisters and the like. Believe me those are the real, albeit, gaudy colours, which are mostly reflections from other displays and lights.

An interesting outside image of the very colourful inside of the Toronto Aquarium.

I'll ask permission - can I make a couple of positive observations?

I'll wait for John I think. I appreciate not everyone wants comments on their babies :)

If you think it is positive, go ahead. Except for trying to bring down the highlights, I posted image as is. But lack of critique is why I post on this thread. With obvious exceptions, I have long since given up doing critiques on other photographers on this site. It is seldom positive or productive. I always say, you can can crop an image seven ways to Sunday and still have a valid outcome, but obviously different.

Hey John,
I think you may have just invented a new art form. How about cropping critiques any way we like?    ;D

Or, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, "My ... there is a ... picture."

Hey Dave, I don't mind observations. Just want to try and stay positive on this thread.

I mentioned the inside of the aquarium was very colourful in contrast to the outside. Here are two samples. First is straight shot, second, a camera motion technique:

Lovely tones. Somehow the composition doesn't seem quite right, maybe the lamp needs to be more assertive?

No, the lamp always retains its character, but shifting the logo to the other side of its stalk balances the whole. That's the beauty of logos.

You see the beauty of photography? I've just finished breakfast (such as it is) and here, on the Internet, have now found enough glow for me to start the rest of the day!
