I little under-exposed for me, and it might have worked better with a tighter crop.

Nice subject. I feel the lighting is very un-Weston like. Looks like a direct flash was used which is creating some harsh shadows and reflections. I believe Weston mostly went for natural-style light on his still lifes.

the image seems very underexposed and the details are lacking - a Weston should 'glow'

This looks a little dark on my screen

Nice. I love the rich blacks, and although not everything is sharply in focus, I think enough is for it to echo Weston's style. What's missing in my opinion is enough balance between the lights and the darks. Plus the pinpoints of light reflecting off the shell really detract and the Westonness.

Great looking shell. I would like this more if it was brighter, on my monitor it looks too dark.

a bit overexposed for my taste.
