Thank you! I was in a Zodiac with my Elan using Velvia 50!!! Bad choice, but oh well. Was at eye level for both the whale (huge humpback!and the gorgeous colours in the water around the iceberg)Scanned in the two slides,extracted the tail then used PS filter 'glass' set up to the max on all settings. A few contrast, saturation, colour balance, levels & curves later (yup... HOURS o' Fun) and this popped out. Thank you for feeling the sense of being 'in the water', 'cos I just about was!
If you have never been to is Canada's best kept secret. Take a trip! #5329134
