@Nina: Thanks for your kind words. I rather deliberately pushed the contrast and tone of this image so I'm especially glad for any critique.

I think I see you looking a tad wobbly. I thought at first the shells were giant humbugs. Nice still life with a limited palette

@grouser: Yes, I was hoping to stay out of the picture, but there is one leg of the tripod, big as life. ;-)

@ordinaryimages: Oh, you caught me. This is one photo in which I was hoping NOT to emphasize my own reflection. :-)

Betsy from Rosendale, NY, United States

Fascinating photo with interesting patterns. The tree form in the background nicely sets off the shiny bowl and the shells. Terrific!
