a few from Malapascua
Thanks for your comments, I do appreciate help on the shark pictures, since I have been not too happy about how they worked out and done already several "final" versions. However, I must also say that they do look a bit better on my (calibrated) monitor in Lightroom than when uploaded to DPR... not sure what their compression tool is doing...
Nevertheless, I took your advice and also did some more tweaking. As you already guessed, there was still quite some water between me and the sharks (they did come closer to my buddy, but did not do me the favor) and visibility was not very good for all of our 8 days of diving.. Therefore, tweaking the pictures is a constant fight between noise, particles, loosing details and contrast...
Well, enough of whining...
Here some of the pics tweaked (I will probably revisit them again in a few weeks and do another version...):
