This shot was taken at the Scott Kingdoms of the Seas Aquarium, at the Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo, featuring realistic displays of aquatic habitats from polar regions, temperate oceans, coral reefs and the Amazon. The animals on the background are jellyfish, specifically moon jelly, holded in a glass cylinder. I just couldn't resist to take this shot as a friend of mine was enjoying the place. I hope you like it.

I like this shot because it is something different. The blue background is wonderful and creates a very dream-like effect. TFS

Hi Ricardo, You have done a good job to show the silhouette view of the visitor to the jelly fish tank. You have well made use of light and an excellent long exposure image.

A dramatic photograph this...You've used the background so very well to silhouette the subject..interesting posture of your friend here. Very very surreal

Excellent silhouette photo - very sharp. The vivid blue is a wonderful background, although I have a personal aversion to jelly-fish; they seem so creepy, but that's just me being odd.

You achieved a dramatic result in this photo, with an image of great graphical impact. I think that the image has also different interpretations (of course, beacuse of the title and after reading the note one knows that it was a moment of joy).
The exposure and composition are spotless, but I specially value your 'eye' in seeing and capturing the photo.

Strange but beuatiful composition.
I love the background full of jelly fishes.
And the silhouette really contrasts with the strong blue.

Fantastic capture, Ricardo!
Excellent use of silhouetting - and this 'tricolore' shots always have full impact!
Looks like some Sci-Fi scene, from another world.
I'm sure your friend is pleased with this photo, too!
All the best,

Now I see what this is!! Superb composition Ricardo! The colours are brilliant and the jellyfish can be called pretty. Well done,

Hi Ricardo, unusual and creative shot, I didn't realize it was an aquarium when I looked at the thumbnail, so this is a nice surprise too. The sea of jellyfish is very attractive as background for the fantastic silhouette. A fascinating dreamy shot. Congratulations, Daniel

Vendo a imagem pequena, a princípio, não a compreendi. Ao abrí-la, entretanto, tive uma boa surpresa! As cores são magníficas! Ótima ideia, muito criativa!

aloyho (6798) 2006-05-09 9:21
Interesting visual effect in this low light setting and you managed it very well. The slow movement of the jellyfish can be felt and an exciting background for the silhouette figure. I like the idea and composition. Wonderful shot!! Have a nice day.

Nice shot with good mood. By the way to me it seems like a CROSS (crussifiction).
atus (15856) 2006-05-21 6:13
you had a very good idea to take this artistic shot!
The background is simply fantastic and very well contrasting with the silhouette. Very well done!
