Anemone reef, Thailand, Diver and anemone, (Alternate manipulated image), Shots like this diver and anemones are not a common black and white subject. In many ways an over emphasised grain detracts from the original image. As a photographer I wish I had remembered to ask my buddy to remove her snorkel before the dive. PhotoShop was used to remove the colour from the original slide and add the grain. Separate image layers were then painted with green, orange and yellow for the anemone, fish and camera. The opacity of the painted layers was reduced so that detail from the black and white showed through. The fill colours for the anemone was sampled from the original colour image, but the colours for the fish and camera were taken straight from the palettes in PhotoShop. Personally I much prefer the original colour slide.
