I spotted this small selection of shells on the beach and thought it would make a pretty picture Smile
I really appreciate all the positive and funny comments and votes on my rusted car photo yesterday - and of course mega thanx to Ivor [ capto] for his brilliant mod Smile

Hi Herman, it has gotten so easy, somehow, late at night here in Philadelphia, to pick our your photo in the portfolio.......and you do vary greatly what you are shooting. This is a wonderful (not so) still (not so) life. I like your assemblage and arrangement to make a lovely on the beach composition. Great colors, and it looks like you have some really coarse sand down there.

A wonderful collection of beautiful shells, which IMHO Herman after conversing with a fellow ePz member regarding the matter of photographing such subjects, would have looked great from varying points of view. I particularly think that a really low point of view would have worked well with a large Aperture allowing you to be creative with your Depth of Field and allowing you at the same time to pick up on the colour and details quite wonderfully, especially in the multi colour granulated surface.
