[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These jellyfish were drifting in their tank. they may actually have been going horizontally, i don't recall. I used my 50mm/f1.4 canon lens for the shot. It's amazing how pretty a bunch of almost nothing can be. God puts beauty in the most unexpected places.

Hi Tom

Simply beautiful - stunning composition and colours - plus good DOF considering it was taken through glass - and water.

Nice and sharp, Tom. : )
I really like your tall composition to convey the feeling of "drifting down".
Great job on the light and exposure. I know how tricky that can be.
TFS. : )


Well played, top shot. They are so gracefull in a very fluid way and you have caught that perfectly.

Hi Tom, they are beautiful, a great shot. The colours are luminous and the highlights against the blue are wonderful. All makes a very interesting and lovely composition.

Hello Tom, :)

Very well done, amazing that this was through glass! Lovely colours, with great composition! Thank you for sharing!
