A most pleasing still-life, well set up with a great reflection. Looking superbly effective against the black. Love it SmileSmileSmile - (Spot out the tiny white blob near bottom left)

What a beautiful selection of shells, Herman, presumably all found on your beaches. I love the sea urchin, and the presentation is wonderful. Carol

I have a shell collection and try to display them all, their beauty shouldn't be hidden away. I've taken pictures of them, but this image of yours has inspired me to try something like this. I particularly like the black background and reflections.
