Underwater pictures
 
Anyone taken underwater pictures at Castaway Cay? I just bought a new waterproof camera and can't wait to use it on our upcoming cruise.

Scanning the board quickly and read this as: "Underwear Pictures"!!! And I'm thinking "Why would somebody post those???" :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2:

OMG you scared me at first. It wouldn't be the first stupid thing I've put on these boards.

My husband did! The water in the beginning is less clear, probably because its not as deep and more sand gets kicked up. He and DS9 went out further than we went as a family (w DD7) and those pictures were much clearer. We bought the camera for the trip and we were glad we did!

We did!
 
We did and our pics turned out great. I posted a review of my camera too with pictures on this post.

I got a new camera - with underwater capabilities for our last cruise too.

Here is a sampling of my Underwater Pictures - But NOT from Castaway Cay - the Camera stayed "high and dry" on our last visit!

First - Not So Good

Yes I purchased a cheap little Kodax Zx5 refurb before our last trip and got some great pictures. I agree with PP, the water gets stirred up a lot towards shore with people playing just off the beach, so don't get discouraged by the clarity there, swim out further!

If you have access to photo editing software with some type of colour level correction it also makes the world of difference. My pics were like those above, pretty much just shades of blues and pretty flat looking. One button push and browns and greens just pop out of the picture where you never knew they were.

hint

get close and then a little closer

and stay shallow as the deeper you go the more the colors wash out unless you have flash and filters or add them back later via software

So what software do you use to get the colors to POP!? Photoshop, windows live photo gallery, something else?

NurseDave 08-13-2013 04:42 PM

I use photoshop, but just because that's what I happen to have.

It is originally from 2010 but has pictures of sharks and other sea life taken at CC.
