Mehmet Bey günaydın,tabii ki yine nefis bir çekim,-20 dereceleri hissederken,denizin sıcaklığını anımsatan bir kare,ellerinize sağlık,mutlu yıllar :)
Another of your fine underwater specimens to start the New Year.Good idea to post this one as the first one was wiped out.
The details on the shell are rich and in good view but i do think the focus was lost out a bit and image got a tad soft compared to your otherwise usual outstandingly sharp images.
The dark BG you chose has helped excellently to highlight the colours and contrasts on the shell itself making the composition more interesting.
Thank you for your wonderful contributions in genre of marinelife and we hope to see more of your unique and priceless captures in 2009.Peace and Health to you and family

Merhaba Mehmet hocam,
sizin de yeni yılınızı kutlarım..
Yine nefis bir örnek sunmuşsunuz bizlere..
The shells in your collection are splendidly shaped and so big in size. The most of them look solid and firm and not fragile like the ones I have seen in real life. The dotted markings on this peach coloured beauty are very eye-catching and striking. The brown spots look like they have been engraved or burned into the shell. The outer lining of the shell looks like that of an ear, and in this case it must be that of a giant as this is rather huge. A lovely presentation and as always very educational. Thanks for all your valuable contributions from your side to the site.

Happy New Year, dear friend. I wish you to continue your unique collection of amazing shell pictures. I have seen enough number of shells however, your collection impresses the imagination. Especially I like their colouration and skill of reproduction of their beauty. My compliments and TFS.
I wish you a happy and healthy 2009!
You start the year with a fine portrait of a species of Helmet shell that strikes a chord of familiarity. When we were snorkelling in the Caribean by Tobago I saw a similar species, quite large, easily 20cm long and probably the same genus as this Cassis.
This beautifully portrayed showing the salient features with fine sharpness and lighting.
Thanks for sharing this beauty as well as your customary informative note,
