Manila Ocean Park - Something makes me blue

Didn't have my prime lens when we went to the Manila Ocean Park sneak preview and even with a VR lens, it was pretty hard to shoot the fast-moving sharks even with a wide open aperture and no tripod.  But I think I managed to come home with some keepers like this one as the blur added to the drama, evoking a painting-like quality. 

One other thing, I'm adding a watermark/label on every image I post from hereon (as much as I hate doing it).I ronwulf called my attention to a site that used our images and his video without requesting permission. I usually don't mind other people using my images as long as they comply with the note on the sidebar: please ask permission first. To whoever is the webmaster of the site: www.oceanparkmanilabay.com, please respect other people's rights; at the very least, you could've asked permission first as my posts accept comments and I've explicitly stated my email address on this blog. Or you could've credited the images and videos to their respective owners.

hi lori! thanks for dropping by after quite a long while. changed things around here kasi nga with the new year, i felt the time was ripe for some changes.

i think my excitement over the manila ocean park is pretty obvious, hahaha. it's an exciting new destination for kids and kids at heart.

re: photos used without permission. it's a sad fact but some people would not blink in using other people's work.

to magandang pusa,
salamat sa pagdalaw. hope you enjoyed the articles and the images. yeah, i'm mad about the unauthorized use of my images. but on the other hand, should i feel elated that some people steal my images because they're good? just thinking...

wow, ocean park huh? this is quite a destination. Meron na pala ganyan sa Pinas. Di talaga pahuhuli ang Pinoy. And your photos look great as usual. Good to mark your work. Lest it gets stolen again.

Proof you have nice pictures...

The watermark is not a guarantee that they will not use your pictures without your knowledge. In photo shop I can erase your name in less than a minute!

i know sidney, i know. it's just an attempt at putting a bit of ownership over the images even though i can take someone's images and erase the watermarks myself :-( some people just don't respect ownership.

on the other hand, it maybe true what you said, the images may be good enough to steal... hahaha, i don't know whether that should make me smile or make me mad.
