    Close-up photo of an image of the tube feet of a sunflower starfish

    The photo below is a close-up look at the tube feet of a sunflower starfish (Pycnopodia helianthoides) as it crawled on the inside of a glass aquarium. I took the picture over 20 years ago and recently had the original Fujichrome 50 slide scanned and digitized. As always, the scanned image needed some work (you can see the unedited version on my blog). This is the final result after editing with Photoshop and Noiseware.

    Happy Halloween!

    Thank you very much everyone! I admit, I am starting to think of some ways to make a little cash to offset the costs of my blog and photography. I was actually thinking of maybe a T-shirt. You really think people would want to purchase prints of my photography?

    Cheers,
