photo of predaceous water beetle


Hi all,

I posted this photo on my blog last night, along with an explanation of how I used Photoshop to salvage the picture.

Later today I will be posting some nicer pictures of this same critter...

Cheers,
EC

Thank you! It feels funny sometimes when I show my mistakes and not just great photos, so I appreciate the feedback.

Thank you so much! Be sure and check back later tonight or tomorrow. I will be posting a couple of much nicer photos of that beetle.

What skill I have is the result of reading lots of photography books and articles and taking lots of photos. And the way technology is going, the equipment to take great photos is getting more and more accessible...

Cheers,
EC
