Muskies are fun. And kind of easy to sneak up on so you can catch them doing secret muskrat stuff. I like the heading right for us aspect of this even if it’s soft. The bigger issues for me are the heavy cyan cast and the low contrast, so I had a go with it in Photoshop for your consideration -
One correct color cast action in the TK8 pane wasn’t quite right, so I used the second method on top of it and then just added a curves layer and pulled the opacity back to about 80% then put a black mask on it so I could paint it in the center of the photo, leaving the background less contrasty.
Hope you don’t mind. Fun shot even if it isn’t perfect. Sometimes it’s just better to go out and enjoy just being with them, but I’m glad you caught it.
