Artist's Description

Many varieties of jellies are on display at the Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach, California, USA), and none are easy photographic subjects thanks to the complications of low light, reflections on tank surfaces, and creature movement. Of course none of that deters me from stopping at every tank on every visit and trying yet again. I had pretty good luck on this visit with the North Pacific sea nettles, of which this is one of my better captures. (Uncropped image processed in Imagenomic Noiseware, slight exposure adjustment and a bit of sharpening in Topaz Detail.) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/5.6, 1/40 sec., ISO 3200, aquarium tank lighting, handheld)
