Monterey Bay Aquarium Trip

Had a great trip. Monterey Aquarium was fun, though I expected it to be bigger. I would say if you had gone to the Long Beach Aquarium, it is very similar in style and selection.

Here are a few of my shots. I shot with my good ol' 20D, using mostly 24-70L, though a few of the smaller critters got the 100mm treatment. Mostly flash (either with STE2, or on camera with Lightsphere) but a few, like the jellies, were done available light ISO 1600.

A face even a mother would not love:


Don't come near my toy:


Yummy!


Home is where.... oh, yeah, I am carrying it:

Paradise, I assume you're going to be around for the AGA convention in November? I hear tell the field trip to the aquarium is going to get the back-stage treatment.

Really fantastic pictures there - thanks for sharing! Glad you had a fun trip!

Great pictures! Do you mind me asking what white balance did you use?

Jen, I may make it, not 100% sure.

Tommy, Auto WB all the way I shoot RAW, so it's not a problem ever. Just adjust it in RAW processor. Actually Canons have a great WB sensor, Auto usually works really well.
