A wonderfully composed and balanced composition Bill captured from what appears to be a rather uncomfortable point of view. "All in the name of photography?"

Same to you. Tongue Grin
A trick for the eyes. Those bolds look so huge and stand out so well but as barnacles are very small we get a hint of their real size. The stone-riddled sand in the b/g could almost be pasted in. Unusual.

Excellent detail and colour, Bill, and the orientation is well found. Barnacles and Bill..... well you asked for it!

Now that is crusty with a capital C. It seems to be an optical illusion. I think they are protruding from a cement wall with you looking down on them.

Those barnacles remind me of a stash of jewels that may have been dumped out of a pirates chest. Well composed image Barnacle Bill........Sandy

WOWWW. Gooorgeous detail and colour, Bill!!! I especially love the confusing perspective too. At first glance, it looks like the wood is on the horizontal. Then you realise what's behind is the beach Grin

Of course I'm a fan of the square crop Smile

Some wonderful textures in this Bill - for a moment I was disoriented, then realized the pov you had shot this from.

What a lorra barnacles! Wink I thought at first you'd shot this from ground level, and imagined you kneeling on some uncomfortable barnacles, but looking again, I can see it's been shot looking down - very deceptive Smile Some fine rust too, for Mick! Wink

Love all those shells and barnacles, and of course the rusty bolts, but it's your pov that holds the attention more.

Great close up Bill, I love the angle of attack.
I certainly wouldn't fancy getting them undone, how many gallons of WD40 do you think you'd require.

Tremendous detail and textures in this macro Bill, very unusual for you to upload a natural history image.
