    Only me again! Ok so these were taken with a Fuji Finepix Z33WP while I was on holiday in Cuba. I haven't done any PP on them as yet because I don't really know what to do with them! 1 was taken on a stormy day and 2 and 3 on a sunny day. I just decided to sit in the sea and see what happened! Anyy suggestions welcome!

    Thank you Kimba! I am glad that you like them - it was worth the sand in my bikini bottoms! xxx

    like Kimba I haven't seen anything like this before but def. I like the pictures.
    2nd and 3rd shots are really good ... you can really see the blue color of the sea in'em.

    i think it was worth getting sand in ur bikini =)

    Thank you! I love playing around at the beach and trying to come up with new ideas - Cuba was amazing as the colours there are so vivid and I really wanted to make the most of it! xxx

    I wouldn't have dared take my DSLR anywhere near the water - hence purchasing the WP one! Obviously shots aren't going to anywhere near as good a quality but it allows me to mess around! xxx

    Pretty pictures. But the saturation is pumped up a bit to high and highlights the high iso, but still nice artsy pics :D

    I really like the new and creative perspective you chose to shoot from - makes otherwise same old same old beach shots quite interesting. Good work.

    Nicely composed images, B.

    If anything, all that you might try is to slightly boost contrast just a tad. Nothing extravagant.

    If your editing software uses Levels or Curves adjustments, that would be quick and easy.

    Regarding ocular's comments about saturation, saturation is all in the eyes of the beholder. Some folks like lots, some folks like muted. A bit like cream in coffee!

    Almost everyone agrees that an interesting image is one that has complete tonal range, from near 0 to near 255.
