This is shot at the National Zoo in DC (in the inverterbrates exhibit). I shot it for the Zoo Ad challenge but since it was not really a "zoo" photo, I decided to save it for the FS.

Processing is pretty straight forward: selective desat of the yellows and selective color on whites, curves, some shadows/highlights adjustments and dodging and and burning to bring out the details in the jellies and a few round of sharpnening.

This is beautiful, it really is like a dance. I think your blue border might be a bit overpowering.

Very cool shot. I really think a black border would have really made this pop. Good shot though
