>These are from an outing late last month, before I got back, taken by beau with his underwater camera. The originals were all green, but we recently figured out how to put them through the automatic color filter in Photoshop, and I am stunned with the outcome.
They make me think of illustrations for 1960s/70s children’s books, or fantasy lit. We didn’t tweak anything beyond running them through the auto-color-filter.
Many of the underwater photos in diving magazines are ultra-real, with über-sharp colors and lines. I love these specifically because they look dreamy and fairy-tale.
