Mata-Mata at the Shedd Aquarium (1994-12-28 0004_01)
Mata Mata - Suborder Pleurodira : Family Chelidae : Subfamily Chelinae : Chelus fimbriata
The photo was taken at the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, Illinois. The Mata Mata is a freshwater, aquatic turtle found in the Amazon and Orinoco River Basins in South America.
The photo was taken using a Pentax camera and a 35-70mm lens. The exposure was 1/125 second at f:4.7 using a TTL auto-flash. I scanned the slide and edited the digital image with ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the Light EQ, increased the contrast and clarity, sharpened a bit, reduced the noise and adjusted the levels.
