Super Macro Mode...on a tripod...used natural light from windows, and a lamp. I also used a small flashlight which I put underneath the subject. In Corel I cropped the photo, and I softened the photo around the edges.

Beautiful subject and very well lit. Texture is clear and detailed.

I do feel that this could have been more impressive if you had cropped out the outer edges of the shell. Try masking the area with your hands - it looks instantly dynamic and impactful. Good job though.

Great colours, nicely done.

Flawless, perfect and (thanks for not adding the decorum of a border) tasteful.

Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure composition focus lighting all good, the choice of placement really makes me want to see inside the hole!

Personal: I like it!

I love the very out of focus center. It's different and welcomed.

Love the color, light and texture. I think this should do well - I scored it high.
