"Christmas Comparison" - I photographed these same Christmas tree worms as an example for single strobe position. Shot with identical settings but moving the strobe further back to create more shadows, and hence, texture!

Close up shot of soft coral munching on the passing plank... by Sean Dimoff
Close up shot of soft coral munching on the passing plankton. When observed from a distance these colonies look like stalks in the water, but when you get nice and close you can see the beautiful hidden organization.
