From a morning walk.

First is skull of a fish. Others are vertabrae.

Wasn't sure whether to present them this way or grungy in b&w. Here's one of those. Matt

Both presentation styles work, because they are well done, because the detail and contrast is sufficient for either, and because there is as much of interest in the tonalities as in the colors. So it is a matter of artist's choice. They make nice semi-abstract detail shots. Even though they are a bit gruesome in one sense, they speak of the ocean. Frame one in a small square crop for the bathroom, like most people do with seashells. You'll be different and original.

Thanks Minnie. I'll run the idea of the photo for the bathroom past the bride. Matt

Minnie's critique is pretty good and, I have to admit, got a good chuckle about the bathroom photo idea. You got lucky on this one. More often than not, any time I come across a dead fish it is far more gruesome than this.

B&W for me. If it wasn't for the explanation, it could be anything!

Thanks Ed. Yes, the close-up of the head makes it look huge. Matt
