Oh don't be. It had a happy life for a Starfish. It once danced on Broadway :D

This image is strangely unsettling. It makes me laugh because the starfish looks so melodramatic. We are so used to seeing them in their stiff dried out form in shops. Here it looks like it once was actually a living creature so I feel kind of sad.:(:)

It does indeed have a dark comedic feeling to it. Many people have commented on it and it pleases me that it's not just my twisted mind that thins so.

If I found this, I don't know that I would have thought to compose the frame in such a way. It's excellent! Sad, yes. But wonderful and the starfish is now immortalized by your work.

Great shot! I'm glad that the picture came out the way you wanted too! :D (I try to take picture's I'll keep and love with digital because I find it WAY TOO EASY to just snap a ton and throw away a ton...)

I LOVE the concept! :D

It's my warped sense of humour as well..... I do honestly see comedy in this. It's the tragic kind...


I think it's a very British style of humour and I checked your nationality before I responded :D
