This is a fabulous image! And very interesting from a biological point of view. It is very difficult to photograph moist, slimy objects without a lot of nasty reflections and burn-out. Here you have succeeded very well. More info as to where and how you took this image would add to your very good note.

Wow Michal, this is excellent. What a good macro, showing all the sticky colourful bits of the Spiny starfish. And interesting notes too, TFS.

I like very much this one.
It looks great, I can see the textures perfectly, beautiful transparencies, colours and looks very natural and moody.
If you did not crop very much and still have resolution a close up would be great for another post.
Thanks for posting and for the useful info.

Coz to za potwor tym razem ;-) Rewelacyjne zdjecie - bardzo podoba mi sie kompozycja i pomysl. Szczegolowe, ostre, dobrze nasycone kolory, ale przede wszystkim ciekawy zwierz :-) Te 'palce' przypominaja mi cos, co mi sie ostatnio zaleglo w akwarium ;-)

Great colours and sharpness. However I'm would be afraid to get such close-up of such dangerous species :-)

Very interesting close-up!
Sharpness and exposure are excellent. It's a chance that you mention it's a starfish, because that close it could be a lot of different subjects. But as you title suggest, the stickiness is very well represented.
Good job and TFS.

Hi Michal, what an interesting subject, where did you get it? The colours, bg, focusing and composition are all perfect.

Hi Michal, very interesting macro-shot, beautiful lighting on these Spiny Starfish, they looks like cristal!! Great composition and perfect colors too, best regards, Didier.

Perfect composition, much like a still life. Marvellous colour contrast, the intense orange colour contrasting with deep blue bg. Yes, these starfishes are fascinating. I am particularly impressed how they can change from bilateral symmetry in their larval form into fivefold symmetry in adults. Does the future of all life forms reside in higher symmetry ? And then it's so fascinating to see how they crawl around in time lapse documentation.

Beautiful photo of a "rare thing", had not imagined to me that they could exist. The details and colors are majestic. Pretty composition and excellent note.
