I took many photos with different in camera white balance settings and used the "selective color" option in Photoshop.

What did you photograph that with? How did you get the blue tint gone?

Very nice! you had it listed as an amphibian - I changed it to a reptile , which it is.

Oh cool, nice pic! This is a loggerhead sea turtle by the way, it's the plates on the shell that run down the spine that give it away ;) Great picture, so clear! And I love his face :)
