With the wedding fast approaching you'd think we'd be hard at work doing planning work and not at the Monterey Bay Aquarium huh? Well actually we are hard at work, its just that my sister Janani arrived Friday evening and we figured we should have at least one day where she could see the California sights. Since Kim and I hadn't been to the Monterey Bay Aquarium either, it seemed like a good choice. Edward also joined us for the day. Sadly I don't have time to talk about all the interesting marine life we saw so I'll just post a whole bunch of pictures (click on them for larger versions) instead :)
Oh yea I shot everything at the aquarium with the Canon 1D (mostly at ISO 1600 too) and it performed really well. As you can see when sized for the web the noise isn't too much of an issue (I watched my exposures), the full size images exhibit a bit more noise, but once they're run through NoiseNinja everything is ok.
Fun's over, now its back to getting this wedding planned and done. I'm going to try to post wedding related stuff for the next several days; lets see if I have time (my posts will be short).
Technical Specs: Canon 1D, 17-40 f/4 @ 40mm, ISO 800-1600
