Hello Laurens,
Very interesting "clothes" this snail. Very well captured. Great job. TFS.

Hello Laurens,

Very good record of the details, colors and shapes of this mollusk. I think the color temperature is very suitable. The white balance is accurate. Is difficult always to make these two values in cases like this photo. Very good approach and a price level of detail in the natural environment. Well composed, good cut an location.

I should be able to classify these snails! is difficult! hopefully someone in TN know.

Greetings & TFS

Hallo Lou.

Slakken zijn niet zo mijn ding maar je laat hier wel een hele mooie zien.
Het slakkenhuis ziet er prachtig uit met die kleuren.
De slak zelf met dat bleke wit maakt het plaatje helemaal af.

Hi Laurens. It has such nice markings which you have taken with fine detail. You light use has given warm colours. We can see the unusual shell markings from the top POV. well taken TFS.

Realmente el caparazón de este molusco es precioso; no lo había visto antes. Buen encuadre y prioridad de una parte del cuerpo como motivo principal. Un interesante trabajo.
Saludos Laurens: Josep Ignasi.

Hello Laurens,
What a beautiful little snail,
and a great POV on your part to show this presentation.
Very sharp details and good exposure.
An interesting specimen, for sure.
TFS. : )

Hello Siggi,

An excellent macro with such lovely colors, patterns & details. Very nicely taken & presented.



Hi Lou,

Excellent capture, you've managed to focus in on the snail's shell very nicely.
The pose, DOF/POV and composition are also fine.
TFS and have a nice day!

hello Lou,
It's a very cute snail with very special patterns. I never have seen one like this. I like the almost monochromatic impression of the picture.
Very good sharpness too, which is not so easy with snails.
Thanks alot. Kind regards

Ciao Laurens. Another magnificent sharpened and detailed macro shot in excellente DOF and amazing light. Good colours.


Hi Laurens,
it's a good and a rare picture of a Greek snail. And I have no idea what species it could belong to. A very interesting color pattern. Too bad the animal did'nt show its head.
Best regards
