This is from the Monterrey Aquarium. They have a very extensive jelly fish exhibit, and this is a huge tank they have in a very dark room.
I have posted in a workshop the original picture. you can see in that how dark the photo really was, and how hard it was to get the tank even this bright. feel free, please, to try your own hand at photoshoping this!

I like your idea of him in a silhouette!!
I imagine if his hands were open, it'd be much more romantic & impressive,
& if the tank was more bright///

Very creative... I passed in front of such tanks many times and never thought of such a picture. A little dark (the silhouette would work better if the tank was brighter - as suggested below).

Very creative Jennifer. And a good idea leaving the silhouette in the background adding some perspective to the picture.

Jennifer, this is great. it looks as if it's snowing or something. I like the use of silhouette and the dark tones. It would be more dramatic if you situated him a bit more to the left IMO. Great work

Good idea. Well executed. As for composition, I think the subject should be on the right, looking into the frame rather than looking out of it.

I believe,that had the Jelly fish been sharp you'd have a winner.I also would like to see less centered figure. Your idea however is superb.

Very creative shot. I like this man's standing silhouette, it seems he is quietly observing, been captured with this fantastic view. Somehow it reminds me a CD cover
