Photographs are used with compliments from the Navy. Original shots, additional ones and larger format versions may be viewed and downloaded directly from The ones at the Navy site are "raw" images and may take a long time to download as they are not compressed. I have taken a selection of the shots and enhanced them in Adobe Photoshop, then optimized the compression with Adobe ImageReady software. Although the pictures were taken with a good quality digital camera they still show the classic problems of back lit subjects and the need for "fill flash". Despite these problems I have made fairly good enhanced images that will download 3 to 10 times faster.
