    Yea that's the first thing I do in every photo. Highlights are always hiding a lot of the contrast of the coral.

    Adam, when you mentioned you pull luminosity down on the tips to help if they are washed out. How exactly are you doing this to only affect the tips?

    Hi there,

    I think it will really only affect certain colors well. And depends on the quality of the pic as well. Best example i can give is my PC superman. In my old original pic the tips looked white. Very faded blue, but adjusting the only the blue luminosity level just a little fixed it almost perfectly.

    Great example of how much a wild coral can change maxwell. Adam what does your colony look like now?
