    Well more the depths of the pond,,,
    This is what you get when you forget your circuluar polarizer and its a really bright day with no shade over the water! Some editing and some details in th white areas have been restored and the frog has come out well - but so much of the water areas are lacking when compared to when a polarizer is used.

    true you can't see under the water, but it lets you see the water tension around the frogs nose and eye very clearly. that eye is beautiful. and it's like he's coming out from under a blanket

    Great shot and personally, I think a polarizer would have hurt the shot more than helping it. The murky water is part of what makes the shot so great and seeing through the water some would have taken the "mystery" out of the waters.
