    No need to get crabby about spot colour it works fine. If it still worries you just wash it away with salt water if you can find some.

    Very nice, the patterns of the rock work well as a backdrop to your subject.

    Thanks L. Paul and John.
    No photo manipulation. The rock is calcified coral, great texture and this is it's natural colour. Spot colour is still a very popular technique and this reminded me of it.

    I was about to say this is the best selective desaturation execution I've ever seen. Now I know why. Superb shot!

    Thanks all,
    Further info, the crab shell is exactly that - no crab inside. Shed the old shell and walked out backwards.
    If you check out the eyes you can see there is nothing there. I find the whole molting process fascinating.
