Swimming Turtle


This image of a turtle was cropped and given a "sepia" tone in Photoshop. Originally the water looked gray-green and murky. I made some adjustments trying to increase the contrast and to my surprise the water suddenly looked bright with Caribbean colors! As you can see below, this was pretty but completely unrealistic, so I ran an action called "Sepia Toning." I also cropped in closely to show off the creature's shell.

Which picture to you prefer, the bright one or the subdued sepia one?
