awesome!! how did you do that??? #5188015

Deborah C. Lewinson level-addict 12/9/2007 4:31:37 PM

Thanks again, Songbird. The elephant seals were molting and their skin looked awful. I used noise reduction to smooth them out.
I saw the seals earlier in the day when the lighting was harsh. Came back close to sunset and got the golden glow.
