I don't quite understand how it need to be removed here but could be shown on another web site. Something seems rather odd here...

It's a great photo and it is too bad it had to be taken down.

No way!!! I can't believe the museum demanded that it be taken down. It was a fantastic photo.

This is really cool... I assume it is at an aquarium? it is so perfectly posed, fish and all, it almost looks like a museum diorama! Very Nice

Pugsy tugged on his mother's arm. "Come on mom! They're going to start without us! Hurry!"

It was Pugsy's first day at school today, and he was anxious to get there. His best friend, Spotty, was going to be in his class, and he just couldn't wait! There'd be games, and snacks, and he wanted to meet his teacher, and why wouldn't his mother hurry UP?

He tugged her arm harder, pulling as hard as his tail could push, straining to be on their way.

Pugsy's mother smiled. She was happy to see her little boy so excited, but this was also a sad day for her. She'd gotten used to having him around all the time, and the equal parts wishing for free time again and not wanting her baby to leave her side fought within her. So she plodded on, being content to take it slowly and get there when they got there, before she watched her baby grow up before her very eyes and let him go off on his own. Even if only for a couple of hours.

I love Manatees and this is a lovely picture. Real sense of peace and slowness about it

Well done. A bit of noise reduction for the noise in the water and this would be perfect, I think. (not voting yet)

Perfect capture! Beautiful with those beams of light and fish in the background. Composition, color, artistry all wonderful!

this is pretty impressive if you were shooting through aquarium glass. Looks like you have a bit of noise in the dark blue/greens, but not bad. nice work.

great capture. Perhaps it would look even better without the frame.
