I'll dip my toes in first then - really love this in a very arty way, it's a bit like a Pollock painting or similar!

I would probably therefore remove or clone out much of the dark rock at the base of the image - although it is important to give context to the splash, as a painting, it would have little need to be within the image.
I would also possibly look at the blue levels and very slightly alter, although I like the turquoise near the rock (which I would want to keep hence the possibility of clone rather than crop to remove rock).
Otherwise, print it large onto a canvas paper, sign it in the style of some famous painter and fame, fortune and perhaps old bill will head your way!!

Regards
Chris

Re: splash

I wouldn't touch it - it's very "alive" and dynamic and I wouldn't want to risk making it look over processed and flat. I see the point about the rock in the technical sense, but it gives a point of reference and I don't think it detracts.A really arresting shot. I hope you've got some more.

the 50-200@147mm...so very dry!

thanks for the input...see what you mean about the rock so a clone out of the outlier to the left I think but I want the rock as a reference.
To change the blue level and keep the turquoise...any techniques to do that?
cheers
