    Yesterday I visited Den Blå Planet (the Blue Planet) an aquarium just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark. It was quite difficult to get good shots (not like shooting fish in a barrel ;)), in the low light indoors, trough glass. The NEX 6 and SEL35F18 did a decent job IMHO. Most where shot at F4 which I think is a sweet spot for the lens. I had a lot of help from the OSS. I don´t know the names of the fish but as you see there are all sorts, from the coral reefs, octopus, piranhas from the Amazon rainforest and you got to admire the Danish sense of architecture and design. Well worth a visit. Hope you enjoy.

    Well done.

    Aquarium shots can be tough, but you pulled it off.

    #6 looks like a school of White Cloud Mountain Minnows.

    Great shots - very difficult environment to shoot in, especially getting a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the moving fish without hitting high ISO noise issues
