To continue on with my subject from yesterday, another thing that I enjoyed searching for at the beach was starfish. Many times they were missing arms or curled up, but with a lot of patience we were able to find a few perfect specimens. They are very delicate when still fresh from the ocean, so photographing them where I found them was the best so that they were not damaged. I love the patterns and symmetry of starfish, and I didn’t realize they can be so many different colours.
When editing this photo, I decided to try a few different things. I converted it to black and white for the first version and left it in colour for the second one, and for both I played with the lighting and sharpness. I realize now that I am publishing this post that the sharpening could be better, but unfortunately I am at work so I can’t make any further adjustments. Oh well! Which one do you prefer?
