I like the Lionfish shot - has that had much levels adjustment in PP? It looks slightly HDR :)
All arrays Chuck Norris declares are of infinite size, because Chuck Norris knows no bounds.

Nope, no PP whatsoever, it's completely as-is :D

That's my favourite shot of the lot tbh, I spent a good five minutes snapping away at other fish on full manual to get the settings right, seems like it was worth it :)

Only just seen these shots Craig, love the fish / water shots, it's not something I've really tried yet!

I had to tinker with the Lionfish one as soon as Rich mentioned HDR.

Opened up Fireworks & created 2 more copies to re-create the effect of bracketing (Contrast +20, Brightness +40) & (Contrast +20, Brightness -40) and put all 3 into Photomatix.

10 minutes tweaking the tone mapping settings and got these out of it:
