Cluster of Stars

I decided to go shoot a few seascapes late in the afternoon, and whilst in the process I found these guys hanging on for dear life as the tide was on the rise..and quick. Whilst set up getting this shot, I lost a thong and had a crab take refuge under my camera bag. The thong floated back to me and the crab didn't try to steal any lenses.. so it was a good afternoon.

Focus stacked from about 12 images.

Thanks for looking, Tom

Has a 3D quality to it creating depth, must be the focus stacking. Excellent composition and great shot!

Excellent work here. Can you tells us more how the image was created, it could not be just global adjustments. Do you have a land scape version? The quality of the image are the one I like using as desktop backgrounds or at lease viewing in full screen mode.

Thank you Jaydie. I selectively enhance parts of the image and the only global adjustments were curves after the bulk of the processing had been completed (focus stack, water movment etc etc). I only shot this in Portrait orientation as the lens didn't cover quite enough of the scene for my tastes. Thanks for looking.
