Great catch! I know how hard is to take good picture in aquarium ;-) and you did it very well! Fascinating animal - I saw it only on TV. Great, dark mood, with animal floating on black BG. Really big eyes. I like it very much, my friend!

Wonderful shot. Superb colours and sharpness considering that it is an aquarium shot. Very difficult but superbly done. Nicely composed too. Kudos.

An excellent shot on this Squid. A difficult shot and you managed it very well. Dice sharp detail. The lighting was excellent to get the squid so well, yet allow the dark backround. Very nice!

Fantastic underwater picture; considering thick glass, low light, and fast moving object. Congratulations.

Almost an extraterrestrial creature glading in the space :-)
Great composition and good light in uneasy conditions!
What a beautiful and clear picture of this squid, Janice!
Any sign of Nemo or the Nautilus? :))
I really love the way you captured the wavey motion of the side membrane of the squid.
Also the eye-contact is excellent! Did you know squids are octopuses have one of the best vision from te entire invertebrate world. It's also said by some scientist that they have color vision...pretty evolved, wouldn't you say? :)
Anyway, considering the condition, the photo is also very sharp and very well exposed.
Bravo, TFS and Happy 2007!

Janice, this is an unusual and great picture. I've never seen one of them.
Great presentation: excellent lighting and bg. I do enjoy sharpness too.
By the way: the president of my country is known as "Lula"; in English, Squid.

What a superb photo for this strange "calamar". It is smart with the dark background.
The "+++" : subject, composition, point of view, sharpness through the glass, DOF, background, exposure, instructive note...
The "-" : nothing...
Congratulations dear friend and TFS.
