One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Aquarium

My friend, Carly, a wildlife biologist, keeps an aquarium filled with exotic corals and a few small fish.  I tried to take photographs through the glass which had a slight film of algae and when she added a little food to entice the fish out of hiding, the water got a little murky.  I’ll have to go back some day when the glass and water are a little more clear. The lighting was an intense blue color so I made a few white balance adjustments to bring out the color.  I used a tripod but the refraction through the glass and the water prevented tack sharp (or even marginally sharp) focus.  The first shot is some sort of goby (I think) and the second shot  is a coral .  I discovered that WordPress will display photos in circular format so I thought I’d try something different.

    Hi Carol – did you use a polarizer or the “dehaze” in post?
