Well, because it is different we like it. The leaf really looks incredibly disgusting - in fact there is an end-of-the-world science-fiction atmosphere to this shot. Good.

This is good because it is curious. If you had posted it on TrekLens everybody would have thought it a montage. The diagonal pattern is perfect.

I really don't know why you picked that all time great Bob Dylan song as title for this, but it made me curious, and somehow it fits. I love the light in his eye - and I do read all these interesting notes although it is a bit like going back to school. But then again, why not.
PS: I know we are not supposed to critique intro-photos but did you know that yours looks like Indiana Jones? I guess you do, and that you did it on purpose. Well, congratulations on both counts then.

Good, there aren't too many humorous shots here on TN. This helps brighten up the place between all the scientific and scholarly shots. I find the light is fine.

I can't help it, I adore landscapes like this. They just make me want to put on the boots and get going. The note is fantastic. The picture really has a special atmosphere, hard to say where it comes from, but it's there.

Great

But why should you approach more? You achieved a very nice composition like this with the reflection of the bird in the water. And this way you also show the environment a bit more, the light and shadow, the lake and the bank with the treebranches in the water. I think there is an obsesssion here on TN to get as close to the animals as possible. That can be nice, but you also lose out on showing how they live. I like it this way.

Nicely composed and cropped. Good title and the shot really seems to tell that story. But what is it for an animal? Not that it matters - he just looks so much like a cartoon character.

Now, there's a great macro. I can almost make out a building in the background. The dof is absolutely wonderful, though. The little droplets(of dew, I suppose) on the web add to the quality. And the spider itself is somuch in focus. Now I know why I never posted any of my spider photos.

A weird light you hit on this one, Gloria. The sky quite honestly looks overexposed - the rest looks like some sepia effect. Your note describes well what you saw, but does the picture? I find the lonely antelope wandering off into the sunset adorable, and you are sort of hiding behind the trees like a good hunter should. I could imagine trying this one out in b&w - but that of course would defeat the original purpose of wanting to show us the orange(?) light.

I hadn't even noticed that you are also here, Marco. But of coures, you are the biology teacher, aren't you? Well, teach me something. All I see here is a warm photo of a warm sun from a warm person. But I guess that's a pretty good start.
