Very clever title, Ginnie!

Masterful image, too.
Ginnie Hart: He looked like he could eat up the entire beach, Ray. grin Thanks.
Hungry seashells, eh?
Ginnie Hart: As I told, Ray, I think he could have eaten the entire beach. smile Thanks.
Cute! And a beautiful detail on that shell!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth.

It almost looks like a knitted sweater I once had.
Amazing what 'small life' looks in a macro.
Wonderful job, love the focus and DOF.
Ginnie Hart: Knit, purl, knit, purl. I see what you mean. smile I had so much fun that day, lying down on my stomach up close and persoanl with these shells. I was in heaven. smile Hartstikke bedankt, MLMAMV.
This close-up and the title had me fooled. Well seen and thought about.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sheila. This fella became alive to me once I saw him on the big screen. smile

The shell looks alive! like a worm or something.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Rags. That's what I thought, too! smile

Now this is a very good example of what tight focussing will do Ginnie - lovely!
Ginnie Hart: Tight focusing. Hmmmm. Now I'll be thinking of that all day, Chris. smile Thanks.
Wow...so so lovely....beautiful tones, detail and shallow depth with perfect choice of focus point! Brilliant work Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Pavan. It's funny what you see after you get it up on the big screen, right? smile

Wonderful image I like the detail
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Vintage.
Looks like something out of a Sci-fi novel!
Ginnie Hart: It sure seemed different after I saw it on the big screen, Bill. smile
Superb stuff Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Richard. Thank you.
I must say Ginnie, I love the pattern on the shell in this picture. Great shot.
Ginnie Hart: It really grabbed my eye, too, Frances, after seeing it on the big screen. Thank you.

It is so cute Ginnie, I want one for a pet. Much better than rats.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! I promise not to breathe a word of this to Chris. smile
this is one of your best EVER Ginnie, love it a lot, a whole lot
Ginnie Hart: WOW! That's very generous of you, Chantal. Thanks.
I'd say your macro lens is working very well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. I do have fun with it from time to time. smile

Excellent details and a superb DOF Ginnie. The sharpness of the grains of sand compliment the frame perfectly.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Thomas. I'm still learning the macro lens and what it does! smile
Really beautiful Ginnie. Isn't nature wonderful when you get up close and personal.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet, and YES YES YES!

Makes me think of some sort of creature, especially with your title; but then that is what is was at one time (or at least contained). Nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. It actually still seems very much alive to me. grin
Like Astrid... I thought it looked knitted... such soft blues and greys. The individual grains of sand are so interesting too Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. Nature and art do seem to mimic each other, don't they!

The munchies will be the death of me. I love this focus.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're so funny, Puna. grin As I recall, you're not one who needs to worry! Thank you so much for stopping by here and leaving a comment.
Well done Ginnie,I love the limited DOF and the colours
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Martin!
lovely shot, and very well presented..
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sesan.

You have captured great detail Ginnie, It almost looks alive and having a munch, the shell is a beautiful colour smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Linda. When I got it up on the big screen, it really looked alive! HA!
Excellent shot Ginnie, it has great detail just where it is needed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I love all the details, textures and subtle color variations. (And on a learning note, I like the way I can see your camera settings and they are starting to have meaning for me. I must be learning something! =D)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Maery, for finding me here. A lot of what I have learned about photography, if you want to know the truth, has been from studying the exif data. Seriously. It has helped me a lot! The macro lens...well, that's another story. Still trying to figure that one out. smile
That is very cool.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. smile

Super macro. I like the lines of shell
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Oscar. Gracias.
Is this a seashore shell or a cooking cockle?

We love cockles in Malaysia. smile
Just like the Dutch love their herrings! Ha~ I guess so.
Ginnie Hart: Just a wee little seashore shell, LC. smile I was down on my tummy making sure it behaved. HA! And yes, those Dutch sure do love their herrings. I leave them all for them. smile

Ginnie Hart: Nibble, nibble, nibble. Even the sand tastes good, Tede. grin Merci.

Just checking if I can leave a comment.
Ginnie Hart: YAAY. It worked, Maria. I'd love to know what happened thst you could finally leave one??? John would probably also like to know. smile
Actually I reckon it's Astrid's finger in a woolly glove!
Ginnie Hart: HA! She was a knitter in her day, Tom, so it would certainly be possible. smile
Very arty farty Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Thanks, Mick. I'll take that as a compliment. smile
Very nice great use of DOF.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
A great macro Ginnie, well taken indeed.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Les. Thank you.

This is such a delightful macro shot smile Wow!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. It was quite fun to get down in the sand on my tummy to take it. smile
great focus!

Gorgeous selective focus Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Kala, this was all the color there was in that shot. smile Don't you just love the beach and the sand! Thanks.
This is superb macro Ginnie... i love the colours of the shell and the salt crystals in the sand....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile
I love it, Ginnie, and all the great comments, too! Your remark about laying in the sand to take the picture reminded me of a most unfortunate experience of mine when I was in a similar position, so engrossed that I neglected to pay attention to the waves sneaking up behind me! Thankfully, I was using an inexpensive camera....but I sure felt like a fool!
Ginnie Hart: Oh-Oh-Oh, Patrushka. At least in my situation PI was facing the sea! grin The things we do to get our pictures! Thanks for sharing.
A great composition good shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

This is exquisite! For some reason..for a moment - I thought it was a detail of something knitted. So cool!!!
Ginnie Hart: It was that knitted look that totally grabbed my attention, Marcie. Mother Nature sure loves showing us her goodies. smile
