Very cool Amelia! It is great with the shell-sand background.

Many thanks Chris. I had a lovely time looking at the variation of colour in these limpet shells. :)))

Cheers, Amelia

Thank you so much Rosmar.

For some reason this has been deselected for GE. No reasons given!

Greetings, Amelia

That's really a great work, Amelia! Your artwork and composition is fascinating, on the other hand the photography too. I like the background with thousands of broken pieces of shells and snail houses as well as the little extras in the limpets - especially the one in the greater grey one slightly right of center. Is that a worm?

I not yet discovered this great pic in your gallery although nearly 26000 viewers saw it before me. But I found it randomly...

Greetings, Klaus

Hello Klaus, I'm surprised that you haven't opened this one before - it has had a lot of views on GE, but for some reason, on March 17th, it was deselected, so the view count will slow down considerably! I expect the selectors got fed up with seeing it, or someone complained! :))

I am delighted by your compliment, and, as you may well imagine, I spent a couple of happy hours here. The little 'worm' in the grey limpet is in fact a broken bit of one of these, and incidentally you have looked at that photo already! That photo was also deselected on the same day.

Warm wishes to Germany from the UK, Amelia

Wishes for a good week Amelia...they decided to look again all the photos in GE and they have deselected a a friend of mine told me...they had written that in the forum a long ago...



Amelia Royan on March 26, 2012

Have they given reasons Sylvie?

I only know of 2 of my photos that have been deselected, but of course this one came to my attention because it is often viewed. I don't have time to check on others. :)

Warm greetings to you, Amelia

Thanks for your explanations, Amelia. I found that pattern very interesting and did'nt think to see a broken piece af snail there.

I think the deselection of photos is quite petty! It seems they have too much time...

Greetings, Klaus

I think that they prefer to have only real landscapes...I don't know and I have not enought time for panoramio anymore...I think that they have selected a lot of photographs those they wanted and they have not our need anymore as the users are billions now...

klaus040-panoramio s… on March 27, 2012

That's the point, Sylvie!
