17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Ballet Solo

this shot of a jellyfish was originally a very bright and vibrant image. those colors did not help tell the true story of this lone jellyfish as it preformed an aquatic ballet. turning it black and white helped capture that moment by allowing us to focus on the movement and grace of the jellyfish. it gave a calming effect as it danced around its tank almost entrancing you.
