These are two internal coiled shells of spirulidae, which are squid like animals that live in the ocean. We find them a beach near our home in Dar es Salaam.

Not sure what post processing you did on these but these don't appear to have a lot of depth. Lighting does not accentuate the contours of the shells. Interested to see the shot before processing.

Nice picture - Just seems a tad flat

Nice composition, and I like the subtle reflections on the shell on the right. A bit more of that would be nice as this seems a little flat to me.

love the composition, I would have liked to see a little more light on the shells though to give them a little more life - or from behind to show their translucence. IMHO of course!

this just does not hold my interest at all, it's two 'floating' shells that lack any kind of interesting background, show no details whatsoever and are not as focused as they could be
