Deep Water School

This tank was one of the largest and most impressive tanks in the aquarium at Monterey. The problem was that the light levels are quite low, I believe to simulate deeper open ocean where these larger fish reside. In any case, to get this shot I panned the fish and the results aren't that bad. To see the amount of pan used during the exposure, check out the blur on the stationary people at the bottom of the image.
