I find this so simple yet so beautiful, and the more you look at the more that jumps out at you.
I do like how its focused, i think if i had to say anything about it that i'd change it would be the further away eye being in focus...
I find the reflection as just a stroke of genius and the background colours are wonderful.
Other than that it stood out for me over some of your other beautiful works and drew me in. Well done and keep up the good work :) I look forward to seeing more from you.
What do you think?

I love this. The brightly colored crab is nice contrast against the deep, wet ground. I really like the pose, it seems to be brandishing that one claw. The reflection is very clear and real which is really impressive. And, even though it seems to be brandishing a claw, its eyes look very innocent. Wonderful.

Do you mind me asking what kind of effects you did on this?
It's an awesome photo by the way! ^^

Not at all! Most of the colour was captured by my camera, so I just enhanced it. I adjusted the curves, bumped up the contrast slightly, and pulled up the vibrancy (which saturates the undersaturated colours). If there's anything you want me to explain more, feel free to ask :)
