Thanks for the wall space Don!

The only thing that's "expert" about this is the use of the overlays, otherwise it's just advanced editing, or basic if I hadn't used selective sharpening. I wonder if people forget that the "expert" editing challenges are great for those of us who like to use textures/overlays and such. It doesn't all have to be about the montage sort of thing.

Good point about the textures and overlays. Hadn't thought about that.

Didn't vote on this challenge, but I do like this a lot. Simple and effective.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Simple, clean, and stellar in presentation. The overall tan/beige color cast makes me notice and appreciate more the textures and shapes present in the composition. The color hue and the texture also complement the image in that the feel of gritty sand is there which goes rather nicely with the shell and the crab. High marks - very well done.

My top pick. Great DOF and tones, the grungy overlay works well.
