Sea Serpent - we had a very close encounter with this banded sea krait - it was not afraid of us as it searched for a meal. Such a great moment - and grateful to get a shot as he swam past. Cropped and brightened with photoshop.

A watering bowl at a dog park was the only water I could find in Over The Rhine for the 2016 Fotofocus exhibition- "Alice in OTR- visions of the fantastical" was the theme for a group of photographers shooting the historic district in Cincinnati Ohio

Very unique image, it looks like out of a fairytale. Wonderful composition and great job on the post-processing.

If you try to line up the sun with the boat, make sure it hasn't come untied from the mooring or you might find yourself far from where you thought you were

Was it Jaws 3 or 4 where it ate the Helicopter? I layered this mainly because with refraction at the waterline the body didn't line up nicely, but a little Gin made the drone sound fun. The untouched version is in the over/under category..

Octoporn. I would have preferred a different category for this image, but these mating Octopus blend into the reef and rock so well that the image is too busy. I used brushes to try and obliterate the rocks and release the Octopus from them..

"Natural Colors" just the background is been manipulated (minimally) to remove almost all of the colors and leave it neutral so the dragons stands out in its natural colors

Not much manipulation required. I have uploaded the one with the original water color as well so you can compare. I just used the curve tool on the already burnt sun burst and then dodged a bit the rest of the water around the dragon...
