Photoshop cs6
windows 7 64 bit

Hi everybody,
have look please at the photo that i attach, i just upload the corrected photo, i dont upload the original cause only one upload is allowed
I apply some adjustment layers in order to correct exposure, colors, etc, i apply:
Chanel Mixer
Photo Filter
I try also to remove backscatter with healing brush tool
or with filter> noise> dust and the "scratches and history brush tool"

I save as jpeg 100%, maximum quality for the web, those photos are going to be published on my web site, and i always end up with that kind of alo that you can see, that noisy also (the sun light reflaction) in the blue of the sea. Can you explain to me please how to correct this photo in a proper manner in order to end up with a good final resault?
Thank a lot!

May be I am not a great specialist in Photoshop, but I can say my opinion.
Usually I try to open my JPEG files in photoshop and then I save its in PSD or PDD and store. I have some methods of taking away Jpeg artefacts such as cubes of4'4 picsels but I never open and reopen my best Jpeg files in Jpeg due to great amounts of artefacts appeared, onlyPSD. Then I do the same as you and save with the best quality. I never save in Photoshop for web before redacting.
If you have your original Jpeg file, you would try to rescue it. If you have only jPEG FOR WEB, it is not real to have photo without artefacts, as to me.
Let you try to save your photo with exellent quality and then reduce it by Window's Manager as for documents not for web. Your photo is very beautiful and I wish you to solve this problem.
