Bowl of Jelly(fish)

We visited Scarborough last week whilst we were on the East coast and whilst I didn\’t actually take any pictures in Scarborough itself, we did stop at Sealife and take quite a few animal pictures (I\’m a sucker for animal photo oppertunities, I think I found my niché).

It was really dark in the Jellyfish area but I still managed to get a few decent photos using the 28-105. When I downloaded them to the laptop they weren\’t the right colour at all and were really weirdly blue – I think it was the UV light in the tank, it didnt seem to affect Sue\’s pictures of them.

Theres a preset in lightroom called \”Cyanatope\”, I used that and sure enough it reverted them back to their proper pale blue colour as you see here.

From lightroom, I exported it as a tiff, took it into CS3, adjusted levels, curves, boosted contrast a touch, created a saturation adjustment layer and boosted that a tiny bit and then ran a high pass sharpen.

Photo itself shot on aV (couldnt get the handle of manual in the dark with such a bright subject), at f/4 with a shutter speed of 1/50 @ ISO 1600.
