I actually used the flash on those shots and not red filter. But I did not expect much from a intova 6mp point and shoot dive camera. But it was a bit better then I thought it would be. Maybe I should invest in a strobe and slave cable. But I do not dive enough to justifide the cost only dive 20 times a year.

The colours are better in the last two with the flash. You could also try tuning the white balance in the other shots. I don't know what software you have but Picassa from google is free and has a neutral colour picker tool.

Had a little play I hope you don't mind.

Just tried the Picassa tool and upped the shadows a bit for this shot.

Photoshop give better results. I used the levels tool and the white and black point pickers.

no I do not mind, I have apple aperture, but I am not a big PP guy. I like what you did with the clown fish shot allot. More reason I should edit more. Thanks for the info. I will have to try to find out where the similar feature is in Aperture or element.
