Nice shots, my favourite one is the 3rd one. I do find the 2nd one a little unsettling as the water surface appears upside down ! The 1st appears slightly too bright on my monitor.

Nice work Dave!

The first one seems a bit bright indeed, You might want to darken it down a bit? Otherwise nice portrait!
#3 could maybe use a bit more DOF and sharpnes ?!
Jelly is defenetly my favourite. The sunbeams on it are just awesome :blink:

Thanks for posting Dave!
Keep it up!

I think I'd clean out the bottom right of the jelly shot.
Good composition and lighting!

I like the jellyfish, but it might work best in a square frame, as the expanse of water below is bit distracting.

Hey Dave,

We seem to follow each other around - nice photos.

Everyone is entitled to my opinion!!
