Magic Sea Turtle

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Magic Sea Turtle
Magic Sea Turtle

A Hawksbill Sea Turtle, Kipp Aquarium at the Houston Zoo 2003.
Another inhabitant from that vacation series. Canon 28-135mm.
The turtle is the only original part from the photo.
The turtle required significant edits as thru-the-glass photos do.
The sea floor, light effects and bubbles are all added in layers for effect.

For those who asked, this won $500 for the January 2008 cash contest.

Hi Steven! :)
WOW--- You really did a fantastic job on this. The swirls of light are fantastic- awesome color work, too. Your low pov, along with the angle, certainly provide a three dimensional effect. So well done!!

~Thanks everyone! I am stunned. I entered a couple on a whim and didn't give it a second thought and then the email comes through announcing. Honesty, there are pictures entered better than this, but I'm not going to complain. If anyone wants a wallpaper of anything in the gallery, let me know, I have made quite a few and don't mind sharing. Only need emailed the resolution of your desktop. Thanks Again!~
