Macro of a Moon Jellyfish

I'm a bit nervous entering this. I'm not sure how well it will be perceived. It looks a bit busy but I think I did what I could with the composition. My last Jellyfish entry didn't do so well, but that was mostly because it wasn't sharp enough. While the DOF is pretty shallow here, I think there is something more to focus on. At first I was just going to enter an abstract macro of the tentacles {or whatever it is that jellyfish have). I hope people see/like the "ghost." Originally I thought it looked more like an angel but then I saw in the circle there was a little round mouth like a ghost would have. Good Luck to me but not hoping for a miracle.

Your title really made me stop and look at this one. I have a better appreciation of the ghostly glow. Love the soft light.

This is a very interesting photo. I'm guessing Jellyfish, but I love the abstract feel. Very well done
