This image of the Oceanario de Lisboa is the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. Taken hand-held at 8:30pm in very low light, explains the not crystal clear image and some noise due to ISO. But I like the colours and reflections so have uploaded to Caedes. [Panasonic DMC-LX3 - F2, 1/5sec, ISO400]

Great looking photography love the blue in the sky and water and the reflections stretched out in the water of the building with them stunning colours and great detail plus presentation too.

Well it might be a touch fuzzy but, heck, for a low-light hand-held, you did a heckuva job, Richard. As has already been said, those bright colors and their reflections make the shot work. The aquarium, moon and the moon's reflection create a nice triangular diagonal, a traditional and strong element. The pano also accentuates the shape of the structure nicely. It wasn't until I enlarged it and started looking around that I spotted the gondolas swinging about the pier (?) on the left. Nice entry and good luck in the contest.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Beautiful image Richard. Great colors and the moon is doing well over there casting her light on the water. Well done!

This was the only one I voted for that finished in the top five (and you weren't #5 in my vote) and, considering that I've seen a few of yours that you tell us you hand-held to get the shot, I'm thinking we need to give you the nickname "Bipod" because you're so dang steady, almost as though you used a tripod. At least yours made it into the 5... better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

Night shots are about pushing the technical skill beyond your camera's normal instincts. You had good instincts with this subject, it was very well done. Good result!

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.
