Leaf-nosed Moray Eel

Subject: It is easy to understand why the Ribbon Eel is also known as Leaf-nosed Moray Eel. These morays use their nostrils to sense their surroundings and may even flare them to attract prey.

Technique: Apart from adding some contrast and playing with blacks and whites, masks were used to sharpen the eel and darken the background. Selective colour adjustments were made to highlight the blue and yellow of the eel.
