In really dirty water you just can't avoid lighting up the stuff in the water. What you can do is make it blend in to the lighter background. Shoot up towards the surface and play with shutter speed for more or less ambient exposure.

Probably can't. Just create a new account.

More likely there is something wrong with your version of Photoshop or operating system. Can you open the Photoshop file in someone else's Photoshop? Resize an offending image to Email able size and I'll check it on mine if you want. apnewton at gmail etc

In Topic: How essential is a wide-angle lens for a newb?

For a one off trip it's probably not worth it. You really need an external flash as well and a macro lens for a functional underwater setup. 


Best to concentrate on enjoying the diving and don't let the camera take over. Don't expect photos of a lifetime on your first attempt and without the appropriate gear.


You might find video will give you better results first off
