ISO 100. This is a tight crop.

Beautiful image Mark. The Nautilus is a great shell and you have captured all its subtilties of light, shadow and texture. The color tone you have chosen is just right too. Hang this one on the wall. Nice work.   Posted: 08/09/2022 10:29:06

On first sight it looks like a spiral stairway to me. You have captured the shell very well with a good composition and lighting. Great work!   Posted: 08/13/2022 20:27:10

There is a mathematical precision to these shells. You can use this shape to arrive at a good crop for photos.   Posted: 08/14/2022 17:17:10
