Star Stuck on You by Lauren Heerschap

November 2021 - Star Stuck on You

About the Image(s)

We took a quick trip to Newport, Oregon to see the Oregon Aquarium and sights. I again had fun with my focus stacking in my Olympus Camera, with a macro 60mm lens. This was shot at f2.8, 60 mm, ISO 2500. I processed it in Lightroom, then ON-1 Raw. I thought it was fun to have the illusion of the starfish and aquarium on the inside of my computer, so the title became “Star Struck on You”. I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoys their Thanksgiving.

Oooo, another Aquarium shot. Love it.
The golds and purples work for me as well as the fish down stage left sneaking into the frame.
I like the composition of the starfish and the anomie.

I like this aquarium shot, with its starfish main subject, dominating the shot and the slightly soft focus on the background. To me there are a few light areas like the starfish bottom right and the anemone top right, which would benefit from toning down a little.   Posted: 11/07/2021 05:02:52

Great aquarium shot. The anemone on the top right is competing with the starfish. I think it would benefit from burning it our blurring it a bit.   Posted: 11/07/2021 21:10:46

Very cool, you do very well with these aquarium shots! I think it is a pinch busy which might benefit from some background blurring.   Posted: 11/16/2021 09:51:54

A "cool" shot, I agree with Brad. I would have liked the background to be less bright.   Posted: 11/22/2021 12:27:19

The sharpness of the starfish really makes it jump out, almost too much.   Posted: 11/24/2021 04:08:20
