Late to the game but I concur that the first one is the best and the adjustments look good.

Good luck in the competition.

Cheers

Todd


I think exactly the same...including the good luck wish!

Okay...went back and started over with the original RAW file.


What a great image! The shape, sharpness and colours work really well in this version. Have you calibrated your monitor so that you can avoid the red cast in future?

Tim - thanks. I have calibrated it. Using the Spyder 3 Express. Question -how often should one do this?

And appreciate all the good luck wishes -DiverPam

I don't like the square crop so I like the last crop. However, I'd like to look at a vertical crop before you submit.

YEAH - I placed in an UW photo contest! Thanks for all of the feedback and help guys. Just got an email from Aggressor - I got 3rd place! Not even up on the website yet - later this week.

Plus...last night I opened the latest edition of Underwater Photography Magazine and Alex used one of my pictures in his article "Heavy Metal" - which was about wreck photography and specfically the Kittiwake.


So...in my world it does not get much better than this in one week. :)

Now...get to decide which Aggressor Trip in the Carribean that I want to take. Nice to have choices - DiverPam
