seven reasons is a photograph I took in my studio of dried out sea urchins, from my own ‘found’ collections with my Canon G11 Powershot. Here’s the original image I took.

I used artificial light, on a vintage stained book, with a timber stool in the background. I also processed the image in Nik Color Efex Pro 4 and Photoshop CS4. Thank you for checking out my work.

    Your treatment of the original photograph is nothing short of brilliant, Karin.

    When I saw the thumb in my feed, and noticed that was yours, I thought I was seeing
    a drawing/painting of a new hairdo for one of your little people. :D With the shadows
    and coloring, I really thought so!

  • aw, what a wonderful compliment and response Frannie, I feel very chuffed and happy, thank you thank you so much!!! xx
