Manta Natural Light Rays

Manta Natural Light Rays

This image was shot in bright mid day sun (summertime in the shallows) During the edit we simply pushed the contrast and deepened the blacks and shadow areas. It is easiest to shoot these natural blue, but if you've captured a series it can be fun to mix up the edits a bit. Natural Light photography in water can lack contrast unless you get very close, leaving the entire frame washed out blue,. Lightroom can enhance whatever aspect you wish to emphasize- in this case the sun rays.
