Seen in Boulogne-sur-Mer, in France, near the sea, last summer. It was looking a bit funny to me. Anyone any idea which fish this might be?
TECH-INFO: one RAW file shot. I wanted to enhance the structure of the fish. Therefore I made multiple exposure in DxO which I turned into a HDR file. Via the tone mapping process I was able to amplify the textures of the fish. Remark I used this technique not for covering a high dynamic range of light but only to reveal more detail in my image.
During tone mapping some very colored noise appeared in the black areas which I had to remove in Photoshop using a masked selective color tool layer. I pushed the blacks and painted the mask on the black areas. Also I enhanced contrasts of several parts. Finally I did not add vignetting (usually I do).
After uploading this image I read some tips about enhancing textures in Photoshop using a high pass filter on a duplicate layer in overlay blending mode. I tried it and it gives pretty good results. I will definitely try it on one of next coming images instead of using more time consuming HDR tone mapping techniques.
