I recently did a team photo and I'm having problems with stripes appearing from the ripples in the water. Biggest problem I'm sure is because I under-exposed the photo.
If anyone is able to help me with a fix, I'd be forever grateful, and I'm sure the team would rather not have a re-shoot.
I've posted the best one I could come up with, I was told it's not going to pass muster and will have to be scheduled again if I can't find a fix.
Original Jpeg:

My best try:

I do have a raw file, but I need to find a place to make it available, or I can e-mail it.

Thanks

I'm trying to think of a clever way to isolate the problem and fix it. Those are caustic reflections of your flashes off of the surface of the water. It would be interesting if, in the future, you could suppress those with a circular polarizer. That way, you could use the flashes to get proper exposure in the indoor setting, but cut the reflections out with the polarizer.

Just taking your JPEG and duping it to a new layer in PS and setting the blend mode of that layer to Screen gives an impression of about the proper exposure for the shot.

Thanks Kirk,
I don't have much in the way of PS skills but I tried what you suggested. I'll send it to the in-charge gal and see what she thinks.
