    Polarizer would have ebeen so nice here (if it would have worked at this angle). I love this shot. Congrats.

    Thanks Mark...I decided not to use a polarizer in this one to get some separation between above and below water surface. Probably, I should have done both :lol: Curious as to why you would have used the filter?

    I think that the blue is a little overpowering and it takes away from the frog. A little less separation between the above and underwater portion of the frog would have let the browns come through instead of the monotone bluem and I think I would have liked that better. It is your photo, and it still turned out wonderful though. Nice capture, again.

    You could be right about the blue being overpowering. I take full responsibility for pushing the blue and liking it. I'll try reworking the image in PS and post a remake for ya :)

    May sound weird, but I honestly like the more intense blue one better than the second edit. :lol: I guess my taste is a matter of extremes, either end, not inbetween maybe? I do like the photo though and thanks for the extra effort to make a second edit :thumbsup:
