[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday I joined family visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The jellyfish exhibit and the seahorse exhibit are especially amazing, with high attraction and acclaim for the Aquarium. It was also an opportunity for me to work on capturing some shots of moving subjects in challenging light conditions, stretching beyond my typical camera experiences so far. I had several disasters, of course, and several delights:)

Hi Karen,

Happy to see you in full activity ! Wonderful and original shot, both by the colours and the light. But I propose an other POV (WS) : it seems me to see than these "jellyfishes" in the right sense.
Best regards.

Hi Karen,
Very unique capture! The colour of the water looks so blue! The orange jellyfish really stand out well, you've frozen them nicely. Could almost swear that you were underwater when you took this :). Sounds like you had fun taking shots of these creatures, well done.


Hello Karen,
Stunning contrast, light and clear shapes.
Perfectly captured details

Hello Karen!
Beautiful colours and light in your jellyfish composition!
Good detail, clarity, sharpness!
Best regards!

Amazing colours and sharp detail. Mindboggling creatures, really, when you think about it!

VERY cool image, Karen! A tumbling jumble, but despite that, they look graceful. The deep blue background is superb, and the way these creatures are backlit shows the unusual patterns of their bodies as if they glow from within. Nice capture.
