Is this real or a photoshop job ?Excuse the quality, but I couldn’t find a digital copy of this. I scanned this from the PADI’s 2009 "The World’s Best Diving and Resort". This image is on the very first page. I’ve never heard of a jelly this big so I have no idea. I’ve asked about a half-dozen other divers and so far it’s a unanimous fake. What do you think? I’ve got the picture in my profile also. That is a much larger image. Again, sorry for the low quality.

Looks like a close up wide angle shot. Use a 10.5 mm lens or similar. Set exposure for background and place lens port about 2 to 4 inches away and expose jelly with the strobes. This will have both the foreground and background in focus with divers in background looking small and far away.
