Sea Star Anemone Mandala / 2013 / Terry Long

I used several different size LED hand held lights to create Sea Star Anemone, with 18 layers and sections using photoshop. The pier that it sits on is located on the sea front of the Excelsior Hotel at the Venice Lido where I was staying. I took the photo with a Nikon D2x digital SLR camera, with a 21 mm lens, just a moment before sunrise when it was totally devoid of other people. This is a great time to take photographs, if you don’t mind getting out of bed early. Hotel Excelsior was featured in Luigi Visconti’s 1971 film Death in Venice, starring Dirk Bogarde. It is also the hotel that was favored by Winston Churchill, Joan Crawford, and Errol Flynn, when visiting Venice. Here is a link to the hotel website where they give some history and information… http://www.hotelexcelsiorvenezia.com/en/hotel/the-history-of-lido-of-venice.html
