A prize-winning friend has been playing with the Glowing Edges filter in Photoshop. I thought that I'd try it:

I would call it photoshop art rather than underwater photography. the nautilus is nice though.

Looks like you are practising for the EMUP February Competition - Photoshop gone crazy!!

Having said that I like these especially the No3 the forward facing shark. Would make a really wall picture

All the best

I think this is an excellent idea with great potential! Of this group I like the Nautilus the most. As a series in the right environment these could be very effective.
The first 4 could be criticized for being nothing more than line drawings, but maybe trying to merge some layers with the originals may be effective so that they look more like photographs - just some thoughts.

I think the effect on the seahorse is really cool, and the face on shark would be great on the wall in extra large.

Did you have problems isolating the subject from the background? Can you show us a couple of the original photos that these came from?

Awesome. It's interesting the different requirements for photos to be transformed into another type of art as opposed to photos to be appreciated as is.

I really like the shark shots. They would look magic on a wall.

Very nice. An excellent use of technology for a "change of pace" shot.

I am no expert in Photoshop as I rarely take photos and have always stuck to video. However, these edge lines/ cartoon filters have been part of video NLEs for a great many years. I really don't see them used very much but you did a great job with them. An idea for T shirt productions.

Maybe the seahorse, manta ray & shark could be the next wetpixel shirt logo?

Yes...

... I made the mistake of making a serious image, and someone won with humourous jiggery-pokery!
