The Home Depot was founded in 1978 in Atlanta, Georgia. Over the years, the company has grown rapidly. It is a giant home improvement retailer chain in the United States now. The founder (Bernard Marcus) decided to give back to the community. He donated $250 million to build the Georgia Aquarium (The land was donated by the Coca-Cola Company). This is the history behind the aquarium.
The Georgia Aquarium is the most exciting aquarium I’ve ever visited. There are six permanent galleries, a spectacular dolphin show, and a 3D movie theater.
This picture was taken at even higher ISO setting (8,000). The noise is still not visible, not bad.

Like this one !
Excellent cohabitation in this compo of the blue aquarium with its very impressive sharks and the people watching making contrast as black silhouettes
very well done

Some great black silhouettes (not too many) against that giant blue backdrop. A fine picture that's true to your nickname :)

Fine underwater photo of the lovely aquarium. I like the way the humans are dwarfed by these sharks and sting-rays. Good inclusion of the silhouetted figures in the FG. Nicely done a lovely blue photo. Thanks for sharing.

Fascinating blue tone, Tiffany, a great picture you managed.
People as silhouettes against the big aquarium, seem relatively small against the big fishs in contrast.
Light managed superbly, depth onto the water with double meaning here...

I like aquariums - and aquarium photos. :-) This one is great. It seems like the entire wall is a giant window, and there are so many interesting creatures inside. The shades of blue are beautiful, and the assorted silhouettes on the bottom complete this wonderful scene. You even captured some fellow photographers. :-)

Here a pic of the other Georgia! I realize some people will only know this one.
It looks like these people are standing at the bottom of the ocean with the fantastic sea life above their heads.
The Aquarium in Atlanta seems to take huge proportions!
A wonderful blue world!
Best regards, Paul

what a nice picture! You managed to capture all the fish very prettily and in excellent focus. The dark shapes of the people watching them give interesting foreground and contrast with the blue colors of the aquarium. Well composed and framed.
Thanks for sharing

Great overall shot. Nice contrasting people against the bleu background. Maybe a bit more sharpness but a great picture anyway.
nikkitta (17068) 2014-03-06 14:25
Not noise at all in this creative capture
Like the fdiferents shades of blue and over all the quite atractive black silhouettes of the people
Funny, the two at the left are also taken photos
Better your way
Cheers and congrats

Hi Tiffany. Pure magic- the colours, the fishes of varying sizes and shapes and the silhouettes of humans in awe. Well done.Best wishes. Klaudio.

che bella questa foto, le silhouette delle persone sono essenziali per il successo di questo scatto.
Le persone presenti sono molto diverse tra loro, come anche le cose che stanno facendo.
Uno scenario incredibile e fantastico coinvolge tutti i presenti, fotografo compreso.

Belle prise de vue de cet aquarium avec la silhouette des visiteurs. Les couleurs sont très belles. Bien fait.
mirosu (16273) 2014-03-07 3:53
You are posting excellent photos from underwater life. I like this one with nice blue aquarium and the perfect silhouettes of the viewers.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

nice undersea world with the black human silhouettes taking part of the lives of the big fishes.

Hello Tiffany - A striking shot with nicely grouped silhouetted figures and that big blue expanse of aquarium. Fine work, creative and well managed.
Warm regards Rosemary

The teeming sea life in the underwater world of a smaller version is mesmerizing. The perfectly spread-out silhouetted figs are crucial elements 'sharing' the frenzy which really add to the image and for excellent size comparison as well. A picture in wonderful combination of blueish tone, the lighting of what a beautiful translucency in stark contrast, all the action going on make this and the sparkles really make this unique and exquisite. Your exposure control is second to none, My compliments. Tfs

I like aquarium and to take time to visit some time to time.
I like your idea of composition with the dark silhouttes well balanced along the width of the frame: giving a graphic element and the huge size of the aquarium.
Without your note and with the small size of the photo on TE, I would have not noticed you used a so high iso level. So yes, the 6D is good for that, helped also by the luminosity of the scene (noise in more visible in darker than lighter light areas).
Perhaps you could have increased the feeling of the view by taking the shot at ground level, if you were not afraid that the people are looking the strange people taking photo lying on the floor :-)

I love this blue scene! Original and very well executed image under the difficult interior lights. The visual effect is brilliant! TFS.
Have a nice weekend!

Good lights control in spite the difficult of setting
Interesting presence of people
This aquarium is wonderful
Miguel82 (27658) 2014-03-20 7:03
Bravo Tiffany, that successful picture of that big aquarium situated in Atlanta, sharks, rays and fishes are interesting to observe especially for children who will learn their names, thanks for your support, regards

Very nice feature! I am instantly drawn into blues but the fishes inside and the silhouettes caught my attention as well. Nice feature on this. Well taken image!
kwekwekan (1078) 2014-03-24 6:41
A well chosen POV where you have stepped back to give us a very interesting foreground with the persons silhouetted against the deep blue of the aquarium. The colour palette of blue, white and black is highly effective and very atmospheric. You have also timed the image well with the main shark prominently shown in a graceful turn.
