I took this shot at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC.
While walking to the exit from the marine mammal's hall, I saw this shark near the illuminated exit sign against the dark background; I found it very funny so I took a shot.
Tech: adjusted contrast added a frame and sharpened.

Hi Amir, excellent shot, i like...also cause some months ago i took one similar in the Natural Science Museum of Milano with a T-Rex skeleton close to the exit sign!
great quality and focus, a nice soft light, a wonderful shadow of the shark on the wall.

Very funny indeed, and very well composed. I like the shadow that shows us the part of the shark we don't see. The light is great. Well done!

is this the final exit? The shadow of the shark is even more scarier. Cheers...Kiet

simple and effective, your style. Very good composition with soft dark tones and a very eyecatching red sign.
Well seen & composed. Good shot.
