    Thanks for the comments and suggestions.
aoc I really couldn't take the shot from a different angle. I was using my 100-400 and the closest I can shoot is about 6 feet away. Also this is on a jetty, to shoot from a different angle, I'd have to shoot through a boulder.
Thanks to all for the comments and votes.

    Lots of interesting textures here. The bright orange colour of the starfish is eye-catching, and I like the glossy finish of the mussels.

    Good colors and texture. Never seen a sea star out of water.

    Lots of textures here, well captured in the bright sunshine. I like the way the orange starfish stands out against the dark background.

    The color is striking. I love the varied textures depicted in this image. High in my favs.

    Shows the color and textures of the sea star and mussels very well. The dark upper right, which I assume is water, could be lightened to bring out more detail there. Consider moving to your right and forward (if you can do so without falling in), which would let you shoot back at an angle that might give a better view of the star's shape.
