Congrats on 14th Karen! Anything in the top 20 is great in a challenge with 218 photos. Thanks for the comments on my "Weathered" photo. I gave yours a 9 as well. :) - Karen

I like this shot in black and white. I think if the really smooth shell on the far left (or it looks smooth) was between the starfish and the shell on the right, it would show the contrast of the textures even better.

excellently lit black and white creates a texture that's tough to beat :) 8.

This is an excellent example of what makes a good B&W photo. Everything is tack-sharp and the detail in the starfish is stunning. *8* -balynch

This would be a ten by my system if it weren't for the dark spot on the bottom of the driftwood. 9 nards656

this is a beautiful black and white... the texture is really nice as well... I originally scored this with an 8 but after looking at it for a little while, I see nothing wrong with it and I can't really imagine a better way to do this photo. good work :) = 10 - jmsetzler

good choice for black and white. Great texture, composition.

Very dramatic B/W conversion. I like it.

I love this, as one of my top 3 for this challenge - it works so well in B/W. I would love to see just a little more of the bottom half of the starfish. Great piece of art. but what is under the starfish on the left side. It's not distracting or offencive in any way but it bothers me that I can't tell what it is. Good luck - Mike

Wonderful textures! The only complaint I have is the object that starts in the top left and ends in the middle top is distracting because the lighting is low. Evening out the lighting on it would help or eliminating it altogether. 8.

Nice arrangement with good texture (I would have said that regardless of the challenge topic) and interesting shape.
