Beautiful photograph. Exceptional...composition. Lighting is something else and I mean that in a good way.

I would frame that photo.

I looked at the full-size version on Flickr, you captured lots of clear details at 1/30 second. How do they illuminate the jellyfish like this?

The jellyfish tanks at an aquarium are my faves. This does them justice. Beautiful.

Thanks. To be honest, I'm not certain how these guys were illuminated; it's a cool effect since the color can change from moment to moment.

What a beauty of a shot Jer! It has such terrific color and clarity. I have never been to an aquarium with my camera, but you are inspiring me to go.
