Photographs are used with compliments from the Navy. Original shots, additional ones and larger format versions may be viewed and downloaded directly from http://oceanographer.navy.mil/arlington1.html 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.
