Wowie Wong Thank you, John!!! :-)

Jan Acosta Wow! You got him up close, and is that the sardines at the background?

Jan Acosta I love the overall feel of the photo, what did you do in ps?

Jun V Lao wheeee

Wowie Wong Hi Jan! :-) Yup, those are the sardines at the background. There wasnt much I did in PS for this. Water was clean since I was still far from the sardine party. We were just about to approach the sardines then from this shot :-)
