Water baby by Mel Brackstone.com

I’ve been playing with a little underwater camera, and this is an image from my first attempt. The lovely Tara, with some red organza. Basic jpg with very little processing…..camera is a fuji finepix XP, waterproof, shock proof, dust proof and freeze proof! Huge thanks to Brett for the goggles and pool!

I’m struggling with a very poor connection to the net at the mo, will be home soon….

    Yes, but is it Mel proof? LOL

    Seriously though it’s a great shot and it reminds me a little of the work done by Jolene Monheim.
