Photographer's description:

"I was paddling in Quartermaster Harbor and came upon a dense crowd of jellyfish. Shot with iPhone 3GS."

Expert says: "Mesmerizing. Like shooting fish in a barrel, point the camera downward and let the jellyfish compose themselves. Challenge is exposure and reflection, though a reflection of you paddling over them could have made it more surreal. In postproduction, to correct exposure set tones for a solid black and solid white, letting mid-tones fall into place."
