I took these photos at the Pittsburgh Zoo Aquarium this Summer. The back-drop is a stormy sky I shot off my balcony last year. Sometimes when the bills get out of hand….well, this is how I feel. Shot these with a Nikon D5000 18-200mm. Nikkor. Enhanced and manipulated in PSP X3 and Picasa 3. Thank you very much for looking :) Best Viewed Large!

My Name is Donnie. I won my first Johnny Quest camera through The Pittsburgh Press at age 6 and since then there was no looking back. I have 2 passions in my simple life. Spending time with my little girl and taking and editing photographs. I started editing photo’s about 2 years ago and I still have so much to learn. I love seeing beautiful and strive to shoot it. Any comments and or advise from you is very appreciated and most welcomed. Thank you for looking!

    I was just at the zoo yesterday and they didn’t have any sharks like this. What a fantastic capture!!!

  • Hi Viv! I was told it was a Tiger Shark but I’m not too sure about that as the dorsal fin is black. Happy you like it and thank you very much for the compliment :) Donnie~
