The starburst was definitely added. I also over sharpened it in post and was too lazy to go back and fix it. . The drop is real. I did focus stacking to get several of the different planes in focus at the same time. I will post the sooc shot when I get back to my computer—probably in a few hours.

Reef Bass, here is the shot SOOC. When I exported it from LR, I forgot to remove my pet watermark.
