I have seen many photos of some amazing corals on this thread and have to ask what you guys are taking the pics with? Everytime I take a picture it ends up being washed out with blue light and the true color isn't really shown.

I've heard of trick where you put yellow celephane in front of the camera to cancel out a lot of the blue effect from actinic lighting, haven't tried it personally so I'm not sure how well it works but could be worth a shot

I use my canon elph 16.1 mp. (nothing fancy) To edit i use pixlr.com. You can go to 'color balance' and turn the blue down. Thats what i use. Very simple and you dont have to download anything. Actinics can be very difficult to shoot under. Im still learning! Lol.

I use my iPhone also and my pics are washed in blue. Do you use the camera app that comes with or do you use a downloaded one?
