    Now why didn’t I think of that? LOL She is on vacation without me. Be back today. Some Indonesian wedding and serious shopping in Washington DC, too hot for me and no water to dive in. Save my vacation time for diving.. But thanks for the idea. :)

    Something wierd with this fish…
    look at the mouth of the fish…
    there is a black shadow round the lips… as we know
    behind this fish is blue water, and should
    not form shadow.

  11. Carl Gennaro says:

    Even if the whole fish is photoshoped in, it’s still a great picture. But could have just tried to clean up the blue water or black background. Need to shave a little closer next time.

    Thank you all for the comments.

    Mas Kaufik,
    Yes I did some editing in PS, but only cropping, color balance, leveling to get the contrast, and a little smoothing because the raw conversion I have didn’t do a very good job… (the free version of Joyce Image Converter). I used the flash here, and I really don’t know what was or how come there is a shadow behind the mouth of the fish. Right behind the fish is actually a seafan. It may have just happen to shape like the mouth of the fish or the shadow was formed from the particles in the water. I have to compare it with some other pictures… Here, I’ll upload the ‘no PS’ version of the picture soon where you can kind of see the seafan.
