Nice work :D

Getting things to look underwater is a bit tricky, a good way to do it is to adjust each layer separately (since what looks nice on one layer may not have the same effect on another layer). So, some advice would be to first make sure your different parts of the picture are on their own layers. Then, select around one part of it (like the hair, for example), if you use Photoshop you can do this by holding the ctrl key and clicking the thumbnail view of the layer - it will automatically select all that is on the layer. Create a new layer and fill the selection with a bluish color and change its blending mode and opacity until you like it. And then just do that for each part of your picture, like the body and tail. There are other adjustments that can be made as well with the levels and curves that you might want to try.

I hope I didn't confuse you with this long comment, if you need anything explained a bit more I'd be more than happy to :aww:. I've worked quite a bit with photomanips (and mermaids) for awhile, so if you need help on something feel free to ask/note me, I might know a thing or two that could help. :)
