So beautiful!! Love the three-dimensionality of his shape, especially in those tricky blue-shadow areas. The background is so soft, it brings our attention to the star of the show right away. Beautiful work of an under-appreciated creature!! :)

Gorgeous work! I love turtles. I'm not familiar with this breed, so I was happy to see that you identified it for us.

This is excellent and so 'different' - absolutely love that softly focused background against the shiny dark turtle.
