[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I noticed a big school of these channel cats swimming off the back side of Hoover Dam in Lake Mead. Unfortunately by the time I could get my polarizer set correctly along with other settings, the main school had swum off leaving this loner. I liked the way the water looked and polarizer seemed to help bring out the fish better. The water was a long way down, this was handheld @ 342mm. Unfortunately the section of rock in the top left had some sort of white deposits left on it that were blown out when i found proper exposure. Any ideas on what I could do with this? I tried the burn tool but didn't like the results. I've also attached a satellite photo of Hoover Dam as a workshop, giving you a better idea where these fish were swimming. Hope you like it.
