one of my favorite places in the city, the american museum of natural history, not only has wonderful planetarium shows, but has recently refurbished its hall of ocean life, seen above.

more amnh from the archives, and from 2 years ago: the hayden planetarium.

You've found Nemo! I like the colors of all the pics.

Agree about the colors - and fun to look at the planetarium ones from a couple years ago. You've come a long way, baby ;^)

this reminds me that i haven't yet been to the new hall of ocean life, but that i should. i was there for the vietnam exhibit last time (on my birthday!) and didn't have time to see the rest of the museum. i love the anemone photo. what kind of film/camera are you shooting? whenever i shoot in aquariums, the exposures get too long and everything goes blurry.

very beautiful, is this hand held or tripod?

handheld, but railings and columns can help steady my elph 230 in low light...

Looks like you had a whale of a time! I feel hungry now, maybe I'll have a tuna fish sandwich, yummy!!
