This is stunning what a wonderful image, beautiful colours and detail, and so well presented, really lovely work, all the best Cheers Rick :)
nice and impressive colors and structures.
It's a specific light which I do not fully understand, in particular the bright part on the right
in connection with the generally bright border.
Did you use light from behind, in addition?
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Mehmet,wonderfull quality of colours,excellent sharpness and details,great work,my best compliments,Luciano
Thanks for the detailed note. I am now fully satisfied. Believe me, I had not the slightest interest in this field of natural studies but your pictures with your erudite notes have now led me into this amaziing realm as an avid learner.
This Coral is so incredibly beautiful.
Needless to say, the picture is as immaculate as ever.
Thanks and best regards.
You're certainly a great expert on studio photography, and this is a fascinating view of a stone coral. For my taste it looks a bit too artificial in its bright colours and against the black background, I'd really prefer a more natural look. I prefer your note to the photograph this time! :-)
TFS and regards, Ulla

Now I understand why so many people love snorkeling! The coral is beautiful with lovely colors and fine details. The dark background is perfect to show it off.
Unusual presentation of this species of Mediterranean coral, unusual because of the lighting, a clever way of emphasising the external structure that would otherwise be less obvious with normal studio lighting. This, coupled with your very informative note makes a visit to this posting an educative pleasure and I thanks you for that!
Thanks also for choosing my Blue Tit image as a favorite!
Best wishes, Ivan

Very stunning image of this beautiful coral.
Lighting is a bit un-natural but I like how you've given it a 3D look.
Sharp with lots of detail as well.
Very good notes.
Well done Mehmet!

This is the first time I am coming across a gallery in TN where u can find all kinds of shells and corals.:) Each of them very skilfully presented to show off its beautiful intricate patterns and a very good notes attached to it. This is also no exception. Splendid shot, with good focus, sharpness, POV and exposure. i liked the way you have used lights to accentuate its beauty and luminosity.
Thanks for the share,

This looks beautiful, but I feel you should not have cropped it, you've shaped it like a Human skull!So I dont know whether I like it or hate it!

Outstanding shot of this Coral with fabulous details and colours. The formation looks amazing and it has an uncanny brain-like shape. Good use of flash lighting to bring out the details and an artistic presentation. The black BG works well. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Great clarity of the water has allowed an outstanding shot. Well done and thanks for sharing. It is always nice and interesting to read your notes.

una splendida macro di questo corallo, l'illuminazione e la particolare reazione di questo materiale conferiscono all'immagine un bellissimo effetto di solarizzazione,
eccellente la definizione dei dettagli e stupendo BG nero che esalta i bordi lluminati.

Good colours and fine details in this pleasant presentation!
