    You probably should've gotten closer to the crab. There's too much sand around it and not enough detail/focus on the crab.

    The crab looks a little oof, but it may just be my eyes.

    Probably because it's a picture that doesn't do much for most people. I know I looked at it earlier and just moved on. Not every picture will get comments.
    It looks OOF to me too.

    There's definitely a photograph there, but I think perhaps you just missed it. As mentioned, softness of focus and excess background are detracting factors. When you see something like this, don't simply make one capture; take a minute or two and make, ten, twenty captures from different angles and positions - remember, digital film is cheap! ;) Just looking at it, what I think might have worked better is a much closer capture such that you only saw part of the shell and perhaps the left (image right) claw; using the empty eye sockets as a point of focus to drive home the "dead" message.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    Hind sight is always twenty-twenty, but I think the camera at ground level, set with more zoom (or just closer), might have been an interesting shot as well.
