Cleaning Up Backscatter

Sometimes you have a good photo, but there is a ton of backscatter in the way… In dive photography, backscatter is when you have particulate in the water and when the flash strobe fires, that particulate reflects the light back and just makes for a messy photo. In this case, it is a bunch of sand, both free-floating and resting on these two beautiful Leopard Nudibranchs. So I spent the time in Photoshop using the healing brush to fix each and every spot of backscatter and errant sand. Hover your mouse over the image for the original to see the difference it makes.

I think it was worth the effort…
