Echinus melo is a species of the phylum Echinodermata. The test of the dead urchin was collected from a sandy bottom 5 meters deep at Ardıç N of Ilıca beach, Çeşme-Izmir and photographed under available daylight with open-shade conditions. A white cardboard passive reflector was used to provide some fill-in light. A dark BG was utilized.

Hello Mehmet.

Nice shot, from that Echinodermata. Good composition. The sharpness from the top to the bottom is fine. The light, color and saturation are correct.

This remain me my youngest years, when I was staying in Algeria, where we can see exactly the same Echinus.

Thank you also for your notes, very interesting and complete, and also for all your interesting nice pictures from shells.

Congratulation for it.

All the best and hope to see you another time in treknature.
