    I've been working on my lighting and tank params with hopes of improving the colouration of my coral. I think the results speak for themselves.

    FTS with only minimal retouching.

    Most of the corals are from the Pripyat and Dauphin County series which aren't seen much in the US. The clown is a Fukushima morph though it's looking a little dull in this picture.

    I wonder what it will look like on April 2nd??

    You had me going for a second. Then the Fukashima comment!


    I had to google the other two (old memory cells). :(

    Take a pic at night and that should help get rid of the yellow/greenish background color.

    OK, here's the non-April 1st version of the same shot.


    This version has only had the white balance corrected. I prefer to take my tank pictures in the daytime so that the corals are open and fish are active but constantly have problems with window reflections and back reflection from the front glass. Is there a way to reduce reflections other than hanging blackout curtains? Using a flash or turning on all possible light seems to help but that has it's own problems (white spots).

    I bet you could sell frags easier with the first one ;)
    You might try a polarized filter and see what that does for you.

    I actually prefer the original, unedited image.
