This was taken at one of the aquariums I visited..who would have known on how aquatic life is so important to human living... clean waters, clean living. I love life and nature... we are connected together in a circle of life. If they die, we die.
I always loved jelly fish and they are always wonders to me on how something can live without a brain.

Thank you all for the support of this photo:)) It is very overwhelming and humbling:)

*Greetings from the Critique Club*

First off, great shot.

Compositionally I think this is a great image. You filled the frame with subjects, with one most prominent jellyfish that leads my eye towards the 'back' of the image where there are more and more jellyfish. (And jellyfish, just an awesome subject!) In your composition I feel like this is a moment caught in time. I know the jellyfish are moving and I feel like I know where they're going next. Were the earth gone, this is a wild sight that would be missed.

Technically I also think this image is very good. The colors seem right on. I love the blue and golds. The soft lighting, with a highlight on the most pronounced jellyfish gave a wonderful edge to this image.

Congratulations on a great score, and a solid image that the community obviously concurred was a great fit for the challenge.

I suspect that this was either shot at an aquarium or you had some fun with a go-pro. Either way, this is nicely done.

Really like the contrasting colours and the way the movement is captured by the tentacles. Think I mitt have liked it a bit sharper.
