Oh My
Er, uhm, well, ok. Sorry, I'm a little intimidated!

*Salut from the critique club!*

You're my first ribboning CC, so, here goes nothing! :)

First off, excellent picture. Nice depth of focus, excellent composition, interesting subject matter, and well lit.

Here are the only things I can find to nit pick about. While I like the shells going from dark to light, did you try it going the other way? I see some nice color gradients in the lighter shells in the background, and I wonder how it would look going from light to dark.

The other, thing, though I don't know if this would work, is to maybe turn the shells ends towards the viewer just a touch so you can see more of the spiral pattern at the shells end.

So, not much to critique on an excellent, well deserved riboon shot.

Good luck, and have you thought about becoming a member? More challenges to enter! :)

Cheers
Pidge

Dear Albireo, wonderful composition, gave it a 10. The way you present this collection is really artistic ! The light and shadow play is well chosen to enhance this geometric setup. Well done. Yours, Jan

Congratulations on your Yellow with this arrow of shells whose lighting and composition leave nothing else to be desired. A bullseye! Congratulations on your Yellow.

A really nice, simple composition.

Great pic, one of my tops. Perfect focus and composition, my only concern is that the shells get washed out a bit towards the far end. If that cannot be helped maybe the darker shells should be at the farthest end to compensate.

Nice arrangement. It's nice to see these perfect shapes in a line (not just a pile as many of the other collection photos seem to be). Great subject.

8 - Very nice. Criticism; not much, perhaps slightly sharper on some of the foremost shells, but may be difficult to get such good focus on all then so not sure. Like the composition, symmetry, lines and shadows. Maybe just a touch more color/contrast, if possible, but not sure on that.
