This is fabulous! I just tried to shoot jelly fish at the aquarium in Sydney, Australia, and they did not turn out at all. May I ask what lens you used, if you used a flash, what your ISO was and if there was a special software you used for editing? Thank you for sharing this. Your other aquarium images are beautiful as well. So colorful.

Nikki McDonald level-classic January 23, 2012

Bunny Snow level-classic January 23, 2012

Well envisioned and captured. Love the delicate yet sharp focus you've created and your beautiful composition. Lovely editing.

When I photographed at an aquarium in Boston, I used a tripod against a wall for sharper focus and less vibration and to be out of the way of people around me so they would not trip. With mine, I used the natural lighting in the tank because a flash through the glass would create unwanted reflections. My focus was very carefully done through the glass and my images were sharp and well lighted, but my composition was just not there.

Yours is. You have brought everything together so beautifully and so well done!!!

Congratulations on your excellent work, Susan, and your coveted POTD!!! #9937076
