That works nicely with the red of the person and the inflatable being echoed by the red in the ship.

Yes. In still conditions voices it's surprising how far voices carry across water

Hello Bernard,

If I brighten the picture just a little bit, the upper portion tends to wash out. A split neutral density filter would have helped but my Cokin collection is buried deep in my camera closet. I have never used my split filters with digital cameras.

Regards

The ‘curves’ tool should enable you to brighten only parts of the photo in “PP”.

Curves or, if you use Lightroom, bring up the shadows (or even blacks) without touching the rest, it should help balance things out.

One thing I find is that the curve on Pentax cameras, while true-to-life, could get some boost in the shadows.
