There are a lot of small children in Lisbon Oceanarium.
This is the good way to study the wildlife.
The Oceanarium in Lisbon, Portugal (Portuguese: Oceanário de Lisboa) is an aquarium dedicated to the ocean. It is located in the Park of Nations, which was the exhibition grounds for the Expo 98.
The building is the work of the North-American architect Peter Chermayeff, resembling an Aircraft carrier, and is built in the pier of an internal sea. It is one of the largest aquariums in the world, and has a large collection of marine species — birds, mammals, fishes, cnidaria and other marine organisms.
The exhibition is arranged around four smaller aquaria, displaying the fauna and flora of the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Indian Ocean and of the Antarctic and a large central tank to exhibit species of the open ocean, from sharks and large groupers to Tuna fish and small wrasses. Despite its intention of representing the open ocean, it has been criticised by several scientists for grouping together species that would never meet in nature.
The exhibition aquaria can be viewed from several levels to see underwater and coastal habitats.

Without the kids lined up in front this would have been a great underwater shot, but the kids make this a wonderful action shot. I especially like the shaft of light piercing the water and providing an nice diagonal hilite the pic.

Voilà une photo qui résume bien un problème majeur pour l'homme à l'heure actuelle ; A savoir, quelle planète allons nous laisser à nos enfants ?

That's what I can say - A truly fine work!
First of all, the timing, capturing all those kids looking more or less toward the aquarium (and kids are hyper, they won't sit for a sec!). Second, the exposure: accurate and well balanced to isolate the ray of light and on the same time capturing enough details in the mid and low tones...Tones are SOOO good and appealing...A favorite!
Thanks for sharing!

The composition is great and the light on that rock gives a great reference point, with all the children looking inside.
Good Work ! Well Done!

Good shot with rich colour and dramatic lighting. It strongly conveys the sense of wonder and bewilderment. Awesome!

Excellent composition, Oleg, it is so funny, how the children and the fish all lined up. I also like the title.

This photo from eight years ago is one of the most eye catching of all photos in this genre on Trekearth. (It came up in the random order that you've arranged your Profile Page). The silhouette of the children, equidistantly placed, the shaft of light striking the large boulder in the bottom, and the school of fish swimming across the frame all collaborate to make this a first rate photo.
