Wow, beautiful. I've never seen it like this. Curiously, and coincidentally, when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a close up of jelly fish. :-)

Looks like raw gems placed in a design on purpose. Great color and lighting with a fine border to set it off. Pretty wallpaper.

Wow! I've seen some of their other atoll/coral/blooming plankton images, but I think this is the best one :) You did a great editing job, I love the framing :)

That's so awesome!!!

Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. I lived there half of my life. View from space or view in person, it's an awesome place!
