Not sure that this is a traditional macro shot but who cares! Wonderful subject, love the complimentary light to go with the subject's mysteriousness. 9

Excellent lighting. Overal really nice quality. I orginally rated as a 7 cause the shell (??) gives me the creeps. But changed to 9 after thinking about it more.

Almost like it is spotlighted on the bottom of the ocean. Great composition and lighting. Very interesting subject. Makes me wonder how long it really is

I love the drama of your spotlight approach. Certainly adds impact.

In the thumbnail this looked like an animal. Nicely done.

Technical: most likely fits the challenge, though with no knowledge of the actual size of the subject I can't tell for sure. Exposure composition focus lighting all excellent- I love the lighting. I'll be interested to know what the source was.

Personal: A very effective shot.

My vote: 8

Great shot. Lighting excellent!

Brilliant - great use of shade and light to create depth, like the textured surface - one of the best

Great museum photography we've got here. I wish that the spotlight is a little bit wider to give more light to the back tines but I am just being petty. Framing is good too.
