What defines a lovely image is the lighting, composition, exposure and presentation which you eloquently portray here Mary. The impressive design and even the minute pores and textures are shown elegantly here. Very well done my friend and a Winner! #11489818

Have you shown us these before, Mary?
I can't figure out if they are real or artificial. If they're real they are the strangest looking starfish, I've seen. If they're artificial, they're very beautifully made.
And so is this image. #11490777

Thanks for commenting, Nadia and Kiki.
Kiki, I'm not sure if they put pearls on real starfish or not. A basket of them was for sale at The Annual Spring Garden Show. I took a photo or two, because I was too cheap to buy any! #11491168

Okay. Thank you :) #11491257

You filled the whole frame with these gorgeous starfish. The lighting to start with is fantastic. The shapes and the details along with the beautiful colors are all brought out with perfection. Its a scene from the ocean that makes us think of beaches and places of paradise. Such a gorgeous work dear friend. You take care. #11491317
