OUTSTANDING photography.

Hello Haraprasan,
This very nice close-up shot for echinoderm shell, which of favourite objects of Mehmet Atatür, my teacher and colleaque. I am sure he will be very pleasure. Nicely composed and contrasted. Great details and perfect construction. thanks. best wishes

Again, you honor me with another of your kind dedications Haraprasan, and provide us with a good image clearly displaying the opening for the "Aristotle's lantern", finely formed "mamillons" for the spines, small articulation bosses for the pedicellaria and the pores for the tube feet. Nice work indeed!

Hi Haraprasan,

I'm learning so much from all of you - I knew right away that this was like Mehmet's Lifesaver. A marvelous macro of this Sea Urchin showing the fine details close-up. Very well done. A wonderful dedication.

Hello Haraprasan,
A good macro of a part of a sea urchin test with excellent sharpness and detail and good lighting, all of which make eminently suitable at a tribute to our learned TN friend, Mehmet.

A fine shot to post as a tribute!

Kind regards,

Hello Haraprasan,
It's an unusual photo. Very nice close-up capture. It is the first time I've ever seen a white sea urchin. They are purple, pink and green in North Cyprus.(I have a huge collection of them). TFS.
Have a nice weekend.

You did so well in your appreciation of Mehmets work which I reckon he earned in knowledge but you have gained so well in images...

Hi Haraprasan,
Outstanding macro shot of this beautiful shell. Very artistic image and the details on the shell looks majestic - like an ornament. You have put that Raynox to fine use. Good use of flash lighting and the resultant black BG makes the image stand out perfectly. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
