Just curious, Who took the pic? what kind of camera & the settings?
I can imagine your excitement and getting your first marlin. For such an occasion, I personally would have had a decent camera and would have been very familiar with action shot settings. Your objective should be to take shots that need no repair or enhancement. BTW, how big was it & how much did it weigh? How long did it take you to land him.

The picture that looks far away was actually my first marlin. The picture was taken with my digital camera. The other 3 pics that dont match are of a blue marlin that we caught over the weekend. I took it with a disposable camera. We were not expecting to catch a marlin so that is all i had with me. The white marlin went about 85lbs the blue marlin from this weekend went about 140lbs.

thanks cassidy. in all honesty i'm not sure this wasnt just one of those happy oddities as opposed to a real fix. so, i'm not real sure of the veracity of the thing. i used the program 'Unshake', which is a java based de-blur program. i set it on 'portrait', 'normal' and about 5-10 to get a still blurred image of the marlin. but, there was enough suggestion in what came up to warrant some retouching on my part to get that final image. but i certainly wouldnt swear that's how it really shld look.

but i'll let you be the judge. the attached is how it came out of Unshake without any other retouching.
