A try out for my new Nikon D60. Quite difficult to get a perfect lighting as most of them were on the shade.

Congratulations for your new Nikon D60, Kean! Now you are well equippped for nature photography.
This is a lovely image of a colourful Crab. I was in Goa (a coastal town on the Arabian Sea) last week and saw very small grey crabs running into their holes on a beach as I walked past. Tried to shoot some but the results were pretty bad.
You have got a fine capture here because the colours and details on the subject are very attractive.
All the best with your new equipment.

Hi Kean,

Good pov and beautiful colours.
Personally I think it could be a little sharper and what more dof.

Take example iso 400 f10 1/320


Hi Kean,
What a great close up. Colours, light and details are good..TFS.


Hello Kean. Congratulations on the new D60. Excellent camera and my guess is that you shot this with 55-200mm VR lens. I like the sharp focus in good framing with the crab and the hole balances well in the frame. Keep shooting and sharing and best regards. Jusni

Hello Kean,

Nice close-up of this beautiful colored crabIt seems the smaller the wildlife the more amazing it is. Grabs are very comical to watch at times. Try using the TTL pop-up flash for some addition lighting, it should help out with the shaded areas. :)
