Snail Shell

There were lots of snails around the other month happily tucking into the leaves on my plants. Maybe this one grew too big for his shell after a particularly heaving eating session!

  • Exposure looks perfect.

  • The exposure is very good. If I'm honest I find the out of focus area on the nearest part of the shell a bit distracting. It all works very well in b&w. Nice details throughout.

  • Very nice range of tones, a lovely b&w.

  • I love what you did with the focus here. And the black and white makes it a real strong image. I'm impressed :)

  • Nice detail in this. I like the b/w.

  • Nice B&W work. The limited DoF is also a plus.

  • the processing in B&W works great for this shot, good light and contrast.

  • I think it got eaten (I see a gap pricked by a bird, well maybe).
