Starfish on Rock

Uploaded: June 28, 2006 19:37:36


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.

Katarina Mansson November 15, 2006

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!

(Eller ska jag kanske säga "tack"?!)

:-) Katarina #3589382

Inge Johnsson November 15, 2006

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 #3589469
