I thought initially before opening the thumbnail to the full image that I was looking at the tooth of some creature. The contrast between the dark background and the lightness of the sea shell works to enhance the delicate feel of the shell... one has the sense that the sea shell will crumble before one's eyes as they view the shell. Well set up and presented.

Good idea and I like your choice of background. I wonder if having the light coming from the other side might provide even more interest with the shell being slightly translucent.

Hi Vic,
the X20 has a great macro facility..its one of the reasons I bought it.....down to 1cm but only at its widest setting 28mm so you get so close to fill the frame the lens casts shadows on the subject and you also include lots of background..as its at its wide setting. I take your point but this was the only way I could get a shot without shadows etc....I did try but...
thanks

A great image Rob, I think a whole shell would not have had the same magic,
