skeleton crab

By Tonksfest
Hi folks, hope you are keeping well. ? While on holiday in Wales, myself and my two daughters visited Shell Island and came across this skeleton crab fully intact , what a lucky find as most of them had decayed due to the waves of the sea. I put the crab in a disgrarded sandwich bag and brought it home. I used my Fuji S7000 with the super macro setting at i think was f11 at 80th sec. I know it is slighty out of focas, but may i say the crab was less than an inch wide. What do you folks think, ALL COMMENTS WELCOME, Mickey.

NIce shot and, even if it is slightly less than crisp, it's not by much. A strong interesting image, well worth the trouble.

For such a small crab, I think you have done well, but I do like the macro on the S7000. You have presented it well, placed it nicely in the frame and successfully allowed the EPZ black background to take over. I also find it interesting that you have shot the underneath of the crab.
