One of my favourite shapes in nature. Nearly bought a nautilus recently. Now I know why I needed it! Edward Weston (1927): http://www.tfaoi.com/am/2am/2am137.jpg also: (1947) http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/2006/10/22/nyregion/nyregionspecial2/ctarts190.jpg
Great photo: Patrinus I mean!

Great Shot!! If it were in black and white it would duplicate a famed shot by Edward Westin. ( spelling?).

***Greetings from Critique Club***

Now, how did I get so lucky as to have to critique the Blue? On my first day on CC, nonetheless.

Well, here I go :

It's not suprising to me you recieved the blue. You've submitted pure technical perfection that fit the challenge very well.

Focus is sharp. Lighting is perfect. Saturation is beautiful. And the gradation and variations of tones is just almost unbelievable. Very well deserved ribbon!

Wonderful image Patrinus! Congratulations on your first BLUE!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2006 04:40:04 PM
In case you didn't know; it´s a nautilus (nautiloidea) and is a part of the cephalopode family (ammonites aswell, but their sipho is not in the middle) :-)

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 02:02:43 AM
yeah sure it's sharp but it's too flawless/straightforward for my tastes. it's all gloss and no feel. but way to go as far as making it look sharp and perfecting the colors...
