Great Emiel_Skyfreak 2007-05-16 7:56

Hi Jamie,

Have been reading through a lot of critiques you've made and can say your on the good way. I like to do the critiques this way myself, extensive. This photo is is nice, this fish placed nicely off center, a bit hidden. For an underwater photo it's definitly good, since I can imagine things are a bit harder (operating the camera etc) down there. In PP however I would have added a bit more contrast and sharpening to make everything pop just a bit more. But this presentation is allready close to very fine. well done.
Maybe also choose another diafragm, if possible ofcourse.

Default To Emiel_Skyfreak: What does diafragm mean?

Hi Emiel,

Thanks for the feedback; I find because of the amount of colour correction done that if I sharpen the image that it takes away the softness of the coral and makes the image appear very harsh. Due to currents and surges framing underwater is extremely difficult and most of the time I shoot away and then choose the best out of a few, oh and the fish don't like to sit still for very long either.
If can post the original if you like so you can appreciate the amount of colour correction, let me know?

Cheers
Jamie.

Other F number, I find it hard to explain to you. Maybe wikipedia can help you out :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diaphragm_%28optics%29

got to go now. If you can post the original, yes, that would be nice.
I understand about the sharpness, photo's with a lot of small details (like yours has on the coral indeed) can become harsh easily with too much sharpening.
On that side, glad you did not put extra sharpness, but I still think a touch of contrast and maybe a bit sharpness could improve the photo a little more :)

Have a good weekend,
Greetings

Well done the postprocessing, changes in colours are tremendous and it has not hurt the quality badly. Great job. Looks so clean this way, and to blue/green the other way. TFS the original.
