Burst Jellies

Recommended Posts

There were a lot of red jellyfish about here on Ningaloo Reef over the Easter Break and I spent a bit of time with them on a number of dives shooting them against the sun. Here's four of my favourites:

The glowing red is simply incredible....

 

I am drawn to the underside though, the shot with the silversides - it is a new angle....and WOW!

 

Loved Ningaloo when I was there in 2007 - just did not spend enough time.

I've had quite a few comments on the sunbursts I have been shooting since the start of this year. They're certainly better than anything I've shot before and I put it down to two things. First was upgrading from the 40D to the 50D. Although a lot of people were unhappy that the dynamic range of the 50D was slightly less than the 40D the advantage was all at the dark end of the range. At the bright end of the range the 50D is actually better than the 40D. The second thing was that I enabled the "Highlight Tone Priority" setting on the camera (the 40D has it too but I never used it). This setting boosts the performance at the bright end of the dynamic range (but with a loss in performance at the dark end). Edited by Gudge

Thanks for the input mate.

Tokina 10-17 @ 10mm, ISO 200, 1/250 for all shots and apetures in order of shots were f16, f11, f9.5 & f13. Edited by Gudge

Damn Ross, these really are world class. I really like the one you posted on Flickr after these. Kinda combines the best of all of them to my eye;
