    I don't normally adapt my pics with Photoshop beyond cropping and sharpening, but on this occasion I had a little bit of a 'play'.

    I like the shot and that starfish is huge.

    The grayscale of the sand contrasts the color of the subject quite well. Makes me feel like the starfish is in a lonely cold world. The positioning of the water in the picture and the vastness of the sand give it an excellent feeling.

    Aaron - I think the selective colouring has worked really well with this one. Love the shadow cast by the star fish too.

    I love the pic! The shadow is amazing! He got stranded there when the tide went out? The sand around him/her is so untouched! Will he be ok there in the sand or did you but him back in the water?

    Oh, I absolutely agree - I don't care much for images that are obviously "photoshopped" - but in this case, it's just another method of hand tinting, which I DO endorse. :D Great shadow, great composition, nice image! And I agree with Liz and hope he made it back to the water.

    Intriguing shot! Was this taken on our planet? The PS question is a tough one. Photography has only been a perception of reality since it's start. Maybe the answer is just make great art.

    Hmmm... strange, weren't you on a campervan forum or something?

    Anyway, thanks for all the kind remarks everybody.

    Alas, the starfish was already a goner. :pale:

    For some wildlife that did (eventually) make it to the sea, take a look at this:
