The photo was taken some time ago, I didn't know what to do with it, so I left it until I saw it again at this moment. I quite like the sparkling water, but the light contrast was too strong. I remembered that I tried to brightened up the fish, even HDR it, but it didn't look right. So before I uploading I dodged it a little. All comments and advices are welcome. Thanks.

I had a little play with a few settings primarily the exposure and the shadows, then cropped the image to cut out the unwanted clutter.

I hope you approve, a rather tricky one to do...

A good bold capture with strong shapes and patterns, Jasmine.

Hi JasmineGrin I have done a mod for you, I firstly played with highlights/shadows to bring out detail in the dark area in the bg, I played with the curves and gave it a crop. Nice capture.

The back lighting works so well here making the water jets sparkle.

Tighter crop, and a low contrast, vignette in mono applied. The sparkly streams of water lit against the dark background are the most important features for me, Jasmine.
