I have done a mod for you, I cropped off a lot of the shadow,which I think makes the comp better, being less central, I altered the graduation curve a little to take away a bit of the light that was a bit strong. It has a lot of noise, but taking it all away looses all the sharpness, so I reduced it slightly. Great shell, but I think Iit would take a better photo on a plain bgSmile

Nice capture indeed. Just had a look to the Fefe mod and must say that it is a good suggestion to even improve it.

She sells seashells.....etc.
Diane's alternative focuses the eye more on the subject, I think. Well spotted though.

Hi Jeff,

I have added a bit more space to the bootom of your image to give you an idea of what it would have looked like in a slightly different position. Also altered the highlights to try and bring out a bit more detail inside the shell.
