Here is one from my two week trip to Cayman Brac (Cayman Islands) in February. I had found a perfectly intact Conch shell, so I decided to hang onto it for a few days to use as a prop.

Nikon D800
Nikon 18-35mm lens @ 18mm
ISO 100
f16 @ 4sec

Look forward to comments.

Hi, Andrew, I love the soft pastels in the image with the cloud colors reflected in the water. It looks to me like the shell could be a tad sharper and maybe you could crop just a tiny bit from the bottom but I like it just the way it is:S3:

I love this!! Wonderful high-key pastels, and I like the placement of the shell. The room below it is providing leading lines. Lovely softness from the slow shutter, too.

I really like this, Andrew. A dreamy shot if I ever saw one. I might just experiment with bringing out the shell a bit with selective contrast adjustments?
