    Here are some pics I shot over the weekend from a mangrove boardwalk.... all the black dots in the mud are small crabs that come out when the tide is low. there were literally thousands of them everywhere you looked.

    thoughts and advice welcome!

    Nice! What's causing the vignetting in the last two?

    thanks! i added the vingetting in lightroom to add a bit of atmosphere to the shots... do you think it works or not?

    I can't say it works for me as I find it distracting. I thought perhaps you were using a catadioptric lense of something. But hey, I'm only one in a sea of billions some of whom may think it rocks :) I do like the images though:thumbup:

    Ps...Did you get any CU of the crabs?

    Cool thanks for the feedback...

    afraid not about the close ups, I was quite high above the ground on the boardwalk and only had my 17-70 mm lense with me

    Im a fan of the vingetting, suits the shot very well. As you would probly know, it is very dull, colourwise, shooting mangroves and mudflats, and the way you have manipulated the tones works for me, good effort!

    "CU" of the crabs?

    Took me a while to get that one ;) *shakes head at yet another 'insider-only-abbreviatin' * ;)

    I really like the vanishing point element in the first!
    Personally, I'm not so sure about the vignetting but the colour treatments works for me in all three of these.
