Hello all,

I :| this because I liked the different textures. There was not much light, so the shallow DOF.

Please comment! Thanks!

The sharpness and depth of field look ok. I can easily see the textures of the snail. I can imagine the feel of the snail by seeing it. Yes I like the different textures as well.

Only one comment: You missed 'The moment' for about 5 minutes ago. Or 10 min if it's a superslow one =) When the snail is on the peak of the stone. Then you can see it's face and eyes better. Even small snails benefit from a good composition =) Solution: pick it up and place it on top again. Start shooting.

Maybe you can go back and have another try. Keep on the good work! :|

feetjai,

Thanks for your comment.

indeed, it is nice to see the snail face, but then you miss the additional texture from the shell. And that snail was actually fast (!!).

It's a good suggestion, so I'll try next time I have an opportunity (hum when I am back to Europe that is!).

Quite liked observing the textures you brought together in your photo! I also liked the sweet bokeh as the background as well as your conveying the diagonal movenment of the 'fast' snail

Cheers,

Bahadır
