Award Shortlist   


By Shaji84  

Clicked on me of my early morning strolls at the beach (which is very rare Tongue) This was one of those unfortunate crabs having a bad day - probably his last since I am not too sure if he would live another day to tell the tale.. Image clicked with permission. Presented as composed - I did not include the man's head on purpose since I felt that further enhanced the impact...

This is one of my favorite shots and is a replug - with few minor tweaks in processing and presentation.. Hope you folks like it!

Many thanks for the votes and comments on yesterday's Standing strong - have a great day!

Well captured and composed Shaji I think if you included the whole of the man in the image it would have taken
The eye off of the crab so to me you have composed it perfectly.

I love the crop here, super close up of the crab. I hope he makes it for another day or two.

Think I'd keep my distance from this. Good idea to not include the man's head, that little nipper just begs the attention.
A superb image, I like the crop.Smile
