Achieving Beautiful Blue Water in Photoshop

Have you ever taken a photo where the water just did not turn out as blue or vibrant in the photograph as it was in “real life?”  Sometimes when we shoot, if the light from the sun hits the water a certain way, it can wash it out.  Other times water near the shore of certain beaches may take on a more chocolate brown color.  I love brown, but not so much brown water.  This video will teach you a technique in Photoshop for making your waters more vibrant, bluer, and you can say “bye” to muddy water.
