Urchin Group

By dunczilla
The result of more experimentation, this time with focus and DOF. From several attempts, this one looked most natural.

nicely done. I do wonder what a conversion to black and white would do for the image?

Thought it was you, well done - love the textures in this and the grouping has worked wonderfully well......I don't know that it needs to be black and white as I'm quite enamoured of the muted greens and greys in this one.

This is a lovely shot, but I prefer shell II. I think what bothers me is the DoF falling off just behind the first shell. What were your camera settings?

ISO 135, F2.8 @ 1/40 sec. It was a shallow DOF I was aiming for!
