[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo has been taken in "Oceanarium" of Lisbon. I don't know the name, but underwater leave incredible animals and plants which I like to make photos.
As I like it and I am not a good swimmer, the best I can do is going to the Oceanarium. The first time I went there to make photos, about 5 years ago, I guess (no flash is alowed), it was a disaster - I used a 5mp Nikon 5700, nice camera in terms of final quality at that time, but very slooow to focusing, and with low light no focusing at all.
I've been there more times, with other cameras, and increased my capacity to make acceptable photos.
For thisone, in order not to loose quality with excess of noise, I preferred to use low ISO speed rating, and in spite of the low speed shot - 1/20s, I was happy with the result.
This colour has been made with PS. First changing for mode Color Lab, equalizing chanels a and b in different layers, and adjusting transparency to the final result, near of the real colours, as if it was taken with a bright light. Finally, returning to RGB mode.
