The Loneliest  Star by foureyes The Loneliest  Star by foureyes
An old man was walking down the beach just before dawn. In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea. As the old man approached the young man, he asked; "Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?" The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. "But there must be thousands of beaches and millions of starfish, exclaimed the old man. "How can your efforts make any difference?" The young man looked down at the small starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea, he said;
"It makes a difference to this one!"..........:heart:

Very cool, I like the viewing, and the vivid colors, not to mention the combining the action of the wave with the still life of the starfosh for an overall very drastic effect withot being overwhelming. :w00t: Love it, as everything else you do!
