Photographer: Anne Julson, Marysville

Photo taken: May 8, Edmonds waterfront

Photographer's description: "I came upon many of these sun starfish during an extreme low tide. I was fascinated by the patterns they made as they moved around the sand. I have made several attempts to see these before, and this time the low tide was finally low enough. I used my Canon EOS Rebel XTi."

Expert says: "Because this photo is cropped tightly, our eyes naturally follow the long, diagonal sand markings from the top of the image down to the brightly colored starfish below. Composing these elements strategically transforms this nature shot into a more artistic image. As you take photos, including visual details that surround your main subject can enhance its meaning or beauty."
