I have a soft underwater housing, which allows me to use my camera in shallow water. This shot of a Lion fish was taken at about 9m towards the end of the dive.
You lose color very quickly under water, so I had to correct them in CS 6 RAW.
Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.

Like this one , got a marine tank set up at home and like trying to get shots through the glass , but this is so much better , getting some of the soft corrals and rocks in the shot really adds to the image ,must have been an amazing experience , well done

A nice image, pity the fish is moving away from you. Underwater also kills contrast, sharpness, and I think this could also benefit with a little more vibrant colour.

I have uploaded a mod to show what I mean,

Hope this is helpful,


regards

Thanks for your kind comments and votes.
Willie,
I think there is a lot of over processed images, I try to avoid doing this to my photos.
I also know underwater is very different to above especial if you donít have the right set up with strobes, housing etc. ($8000 for my camera).
Saying that, I donít mind it what you have done with your mod, so thanks I really appreciate your effort and I can see that I can go a little further without overdoing it.
Thanks again Norbert
