Sea Nettles

One of my favorite parts of aquariums are the jelly fish, especially sea nettles.  I love their colors and patterning, and the graceful way they flow through the water.  I could honestly watch them undulate and bounce off of each other all day.  Beautiful creatures.

I stepped outside of the box a little bit and converted these.  I wanted the graphic patterns and shadows in the bells and tentacles to stand out more, and I felt the nettles’ natural oranges and reds and the bright blue from the aquarium lights overshadowed those features.   I love how they look even more luminous and delicate.
