Ambient light shots underwater are often blue. Add the red back in with this simple action. Cudos to Mandrake for the technique.

standard action installation. You may still need to adjust 'Hue' slightly after it's run in order to blue the water. image->adjust->Hue/saturation. i've found about -33 on the hue is in the ball park,

Very good correction to U/W photos. Some guidance on control would be useful for different U/W environments. A deep water blue background looks purple. Some photos over corrected for red. Otherwise this is great.
