Striped Sea Star and a little Green Sea Urchin (also known as Uni in the Japanese Sushi bars).
Looks like the Uni doesn't stand a chance... Fanatastic composition! Cheers, pear
Sea Stars can really move.....relatively speaking, especially when they are hungry. Thanks Pear. regards Derek
wow -great detail!!! It's so great they've started a layer for these on GE.
Thanks Kamalyn; sure hope it is mapped. I have resubmitted my other underwater photos and am waiting so see how they proceed. cheers Derek
This is beautiful Derek, I love all the detail and colours.
I like this one. Good technical quality and interesting composition. How big are these guys?
Good luck for your second reviews, mine came back rejected. I think they have now rejected similar photos that were selected a few days earlier.
Maybe I try to take the time and write about it in the forum.
Hello Timo; The Sea Star is about 30cm across and the Green Urchin around 8cm. I am still waiting for the second reviews to complote.... it has been over a week now. Too bad your good photo was rejected. I am thinking that perhaps they want some background included with the species photographed? cheers Derek
I did post a question in the Forum about the policy giving couple of examples of similar photos being accepted and rejected. Let's see if I get an understandable answer, as now I'm totally confused about the applied policy.
The examples of accepted photos given by Gerard did not give any information about the species, like e.g. this one that is even bad quality.
Best regards, Timo
Looking forward to the policy reply.
Re:background, I was thinking "scenery background" in the photograph rather than informational background in the text. I am still waiting for my reviews :-), Derek
OK, I understand now what you meant with background, but even in that context I think my accepted/rejected examples have even similar background. That would not explain different treatment by the reviewers. I suspect the later reviewer had not noticed that the policy had changed.
Like it alot.. it is amazing!
Hi Els; Thanks for all your kind comments. Now it is time for me to look at your new photos too. regards Derek
Wow! Wow! Wow! Superb!
Oh, it's the blue starfish! Such an excellent photo especially with the little uni there. May I just just ask you, do you think is this one is the same kind? I've never seen another one like it since.
We have a few species of Sea Urchin in our waters, the Green Sea Urchin as seen here and Giant Red Sea Urchin also in my gallery. They can both be used for uni, but I believe the Green Sea Urchin is prefered and harvested commercially.
beautiful photo….like …AND VOTED
…GREETINGS FROM GREECE
