About the Image(s)

This was shot with a Nikon D750 at f/4.5 at 1/40 sec, 44 mm, ISO 4000. This image was taken at the New Orleans Zoo. I cropped the image and ran it through Topaz Sharpening program to eliminate some fuzziness.

Very intriguing with an "abstract" feeling. You did a great job shooting through the glass of an aquarium. Given that, the focus is fine enough to reveal interesting detail.   Posted: 03/07/2023 19:28:50

Great work capturing the jellyfish. My eye keeps going back and forth between the two. I wonder if there isn't another picture here, a cropped version including only the jelly on the right.   Posted: 03/08/2023 21:06:31

I think I will try cropping to one jelly. Thanks, I appreciate the suggestion!   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:08:50

Ahh, I love the jellyfish. Is it just me, or is the overall image slightly out of focus? You might want to consider a little spot cleanup. There are quite a few little white dots especially on the right side of the image that I find a bit distracting.   Posted: 03/09/2023 12:16:24

You had a good eye. Yes, I will clean up the dots and see if image can be sharper using Topaz. Thanks!   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:07:56

Hi Suzanne, I like the composition with the jellyfish together but on slightly different levels. Adds interest. The focus is fine enough for me considering the subjects are behind glass and floating in water.   Posted: 03/09/2023 13:41:32

Really good photo. It makes me feel like I am under water looking at them. Very well done!   Posted: 03/12/2023 19:10:04

An interesting picture. I like the vivid blue, and the trailing whatever they are called.   Posted: 03/15/2023 07:58:25

Yeah, I never knew they had those trailing things! LOL!   Posted: 03/15/2023 11:09:57
