and a beetle

Nice job, macro work is not easy. You lined up that DOF really well.

Something seems a bit odd with the colors in the first one... but I don't know what the green should look like, really. It just seems a bit saturated.

thanks eric,
about the colors, i changed the levels around a bit, cuz it was a bit bright, so that might not be true to the real creature, but how would you know? lol, i can't see that close, at least to see the "real" details...

What a neat pose on that hopper, it almost looks like it's praying. Great shot Vito, and I'm real happy that you cropped it like you did. It's amazing how insects can have personalities.

believe it or not norm...i didn't crop that shot...

well...technically i did, from digital zoom...but no cropping in PS

i'm glad you like them:)


i appreciate your post!

I was worried about you for awhile, Vito, I hadn't heard from you as much. Just so you know that if you are not responding as much you are missed. I'm glad and relieved that you keep giving the critiques that you are so good at, thanks, as always.

I hereby give you permission to crush and pounce on anything that I post, whether for record or not. You are good at critique, excellent at critique, and I hope that you will always and continuously critique my photos, and everyone elses
