Hey all,

Went down this past weekend for the first time with my digital setup.
Apeture was all wrong and I was using a olympus c 8080 with ikelite dual tray and ds50 strobe.
Anyways i thought pics were gonna come out fine but after my dives was sorely disappointed considering i got a couple decent shots in. Downloaded Photoshop CS5 to try and fix them but having trouble and wondering if i can even fix them.
I changed the apeture from 1.7 to 0, which should help but all the pics look like the strobe produced too much light, even tho it was on TTL with a sync cable and camera was set to external flash.
Really hoping i can restore some color to these shots, or future advice is appreciated.

Attached one as an example of what im dealing with-PS all photos are like this


Newb in way over his head....HELP!
