I bought a pair of nautilus shells, hoping to recreate Edward Westons 'Two Shells' image, but then I realised that the lower shell in that image is not a nautilus, although I'm sure that the upper one is.

Instead, I went with this yin-yang type image, of the two shells curling into each other, which I am really very pleased with!

Love the idea, the composition works well. Perhaps you might try another with the lighting a bit more from the side so the edges of the shells are more defined? Then you would have the softer image above and one with more contrast (yin and yang again Smile).

Well, I've ordered a new flashgun this afternoon (my Christmas present to myself), so I'll see what I can do with it!

I love nautilus shells - such a beautiful shape. Look forward to seeing your images with the new flashgun.
