Starfish on Rock Photo Contest Finalist
Starfish on Rock
Starfish on Rock
I found this starfish on an exposed rock during low tide at Olympic National Park's "Point of the Arches" beach. I used my 24mm tilt-shift lens with its large format camera like movements to get the perspective and front-to-end sharpness I wanted.

Thanks all of you! Having looked at the photos in your own galleries, I feel really honored to get such great feedback from a very talented group of photographers. It is very hot here in Seattle right now, so I wish I were out there at the Olympic coast again...

mmm, gives a "fresh-scrubbed" clean feeling! I like pictures that convey a sensation, and this one does it. shooting up the coastline to include the rugged coastline really makes the picture. nice job!

I love all your pictures! This is one particular favourite for the colors, perspective and light. As a BF-beginner I get a lot of inspiration from your Gallery - thanks!

Hi Katarina, I am delighted that you find inspiration in my images! There is no higher grade to aspire to in photography, I think, than when people find inspiration in images you've made.

By the way, your own BF gallery is excellent!

(Jag talar givetvis svenska också fortfarande, så tack själv för de värmande orden)

Mvh. Inge
