Hi Siegfried,
A nice capture of this beautiful shell. Sorry I don't know its ID. Excellent sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

It looks like a Conus shell Siegfried, but from this aspect it is not easy to tell my friend, but surely it is a beauty against that black BG!

Kolejne wspaniałe zdjęcie muszli.
Kolory i głębia ostrości jest bardzo dobra. Dobra perspektywa przez co muszla nie jest płaska tylko nabiera przestrzeni.

Hi MF, a fine macro capture of this sea shell from apex - i share with Atatur's opinion, a Conus sp. i think.

Cześć Zygfrydzie!

Podoba mi się to podejście do makro - udało Ci się stworzyć niemal abstrakcyjną pracę. Minimalizm w najlepszym tego słowa znaczeniu
