i find myself disagreeing with all of the other critics, which I'm used to anyway. I like the small DoF in this shot. the jellies in the background are ethereal and calming, while the one in the foreground lets you explore the inner detail. I would be interested to see what it looked like with all the jellies in focus however, just to see the contrast.

Excelent colors, beautiful shot. I don't think DOF helps in this kind of photo. Everything clear would be a fantastic shot !!! How to do? I don't get an idea :))

This and he other one in your portfolio are the nicest shot of these interesting creatures I have seen so far. I have tried so many times to get them right in my camera, but have failed, the last of which was this afternoon. It is so hard to get them in focus and you have. It is my understanding that this is a multi shot of the same jelly. Correct me if I am wrong please and if so some hint on the technich, as you kindly did on the last one..Good job.

Thanks Shawn, The technique was about the same. I also would have liked to have had all the jellies in focus but sometimes you have to go for what you can get. There where a lot of people pushing etc. to see these little criters, they also move just about the time you want to shoot the photo. Sometimes you just take the photo of them to catch the best portion. This is not a multiple shot of the same jelly they are all different.

I have to agree with Steve, there is a wonderful potential here but only the jellyfish at the top is in clear focus. Good concept and colour, try again. Cheers

Really beautiful color and nice composition. Would ike it much better with greater dof to make all of them sharp.
