You know what? Votes are always nice and I thank you all for that. But as most of you know, I get the greatest kick out of the comments. So Iíll comment on a few right now Grin Ö

ÖokÖLillian and Lynne (partners in crime), after reading your comments I thought of popping the eyes. BUT, the eyes are too small and they wouldíve been lost in the poppage. I mentioned to Cassiecat the popping and she suggested popping the whole crab. Which is what you see in V1. Iím not very good, but there you go.

V2 is the colour version, Lynne. Iíve processed it minimally to preserve the original shot as much as poss. Kinda noisy in the background, though.

Tonyguitar: Those were bermudas and knee high black wellies Grin

Annette: youíre not a heathen. I love seafood. You name it, Iíll eat it. This was a marine life exploration, though, so all lifeforms were purely eyeballed with no thoughts of seasoning/marination Wink

V1 definitely, beautifully done, so much more interesting than the mono and with fewer distractions than the full colour version. Well done.

v1 for me, although the mono remains my favourite, which makes him look more delicate, as if he is made of fine porcelain SmileSmile

I had to pinch myself when I viewed these, the use of selective colouring has worked a treat here.

V1 works so well and shows how an image can be made special. The colours are too distracting for me in V2. Smile

ok. there is not os much meat on it and looks really cute. It will grow bigger and less cute but much more meaty TongueTongue

colour popping makes me think of sauce. as in garlic, soy and ginger with a hint of chilli.
I'll better shut up now.
