JELLY FISHES at the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada

By TimothyDMorton  
Lastly does any one know the reason Jelly Fish change colours ?? And secondly I would like to say thanks for your help at advising me the type of creatures I captured at the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada in Toronto, as like mentioned I enjoy learning material.

As this my last upload from the new the Ripley's Aquarium of Canada at the base of the CN TOWER thought I would remind the viewers it is a 12,500 square-metre with the awe-inspiring attraction with more than 5.7 million litres of water depicting marine and freshwater habitats from around the world. As the CN TOWER is in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) which is around 100 km from my hometown in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada.) the Aquarium

The post processing work was opened in Camera-in-the-RAW try and fix the colour balance, and then lighten the image a bit but not to much to loose all details. The open in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where I resized to 600 pixels x ? to met the requirements of this SITE and then apply the UNSHARP MASK and then saved as JPEG for upload to the the first one to find assistance etc.

Are you sure this is the right way up? I'm afraid the sharpness at such a low shutter speed is a long way off. There's not a lot to be done about it I fear.

Such things are almost impossible to shoot with ambient without a huge boost in ISO. Some aquarium allow flash.

I was at a Ripleys Aquarium in South Carolina, and took a jellyfish shot.

Im attaching a link so you can see the type of settings that you need to get a decent shot.

The lens was a 35mm equivalent, shutter speed 1/40, ISO2000, and aperture f/4.0

So looking at what you have here, you needed a much higher ISO to bring up your speed; use Aperture priority, and increase your ISO until the shutter speed is about 1/50th when you use this same 28mm focal length.

Quite expensive to go to the Toronto one, - the same Ripleys set up in the US is around $20, - so typically it has to cost 30% more here for no other reason other than profit!
