[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As they creep along, eating their way forward, the Flamingo tounges are great photo objects. This particular one measured about an inch all along, sitting on a reef on the northern Exumas.

As "padre" said it┤s hot on the body, maybe someone with skills in PS knows how to fix that, i dont. Workshoppers forward!

Nice shot Lars, a bit hot on the body of the subject but not too bad. TFS

It is wonderful, impressive...
Excellent work.


Teh ocean hides the most amazing creatures. Another great capture Lars, a lite bit overexposed i guess but not much. I think you woudl be able to fixh the hotspot by adding a contrast mask. Not sure how used you are to Photoshop but this is ruffly how you do it. Duplicate the phot to a nre layer (ctrl+J or command+J) and set the blend mode to overlay. Desaturate the layer and tehn invert it. Fianly add gaussian blur to it, this part takes some experimenting. You can also work with the opacity to make it look more natrual :). Teh white pixels may be hard to recreate though as tehr i no information ther. What you coudl do is to carefully paint over it on a new layer and then work with opacity to make it blend natrual. Hope it helps

Great shot! It seems a surreal painting!

Wow! How did you take that shot ? Anyway, you can try what ZTO suggested, it looks even better. Thanks for sharing.
