Hello Clint,

Wonderful up close portrait of the mouse, very nice exposure and colours. I do think that maybe you've over sharpened a little? There are some PP artifacts in the eyes. Well done!

(I'm also wondering if you have a few dead pixels? I can see three bright specks)

Hello Janice, nice shot. Is she a heavy smoker? Those nicotine stains are quite offputting! :-) Good idea to shot from this direction to show the web! Well done.

Hi Niek, nice shot. Nice tones and good details in the gills. I think I would be tempted to crop off the top and bottom and make a panoramic format. Well done!

Who would have thought that anyone would have a mushroom of the year catergory! Did it attend the prize ceremony? :-)

Hi Alexei, very good! Very strong composition and striking colours and positioning. The yellow of the wasp looks excellent against the red of the petals. Well done.

Hi Steve, some names for bugs may be logical but not very inspired are they? :-) Nice shot, good looking little bug. You did well coping with the very reflective leaf. Well done.

Hello Kevin, fantastic close up of this Salticid. The focus is excellnt, I love their eyes. The piece of something in the foreground isn't too distracting but it would be better without it. Well done!

Hello Donna, very nice colours in the sky here and reflected in the water. I think I may be tempted to crop a little from the bottom just below the cluster of rocks. Very nice.

Hi Svetlana, great title! I love the position he is sitting in and the blur on the banans skin is really nice. He has a guily look on him, makes me think he stole it! Nice work.

Hello Silke,

Nice composition and gorgeous colours but I do think it is a little soft in focus.

I know a few drama queens too!

Nice work

Hello Sochirca,

Giid shot. The yellows on the wasp and the flowers really work well together. I like you POV here too. Good details on the wasp and good exposure. Well done.

Hi Donna,

I don't think flash works on these kinds of shots, well not for me personally. The flash only lights a few feet and leaves the photo with an odd feeling of cool light in the foreground and the warm light in the background. I think a better option would be to get the camera mounted on a tripod (as EOSF1 suggested) and either use a graduated ND filter to even out the dark foreground and light background or take two exposures one metered for the FG and one for that gorgeous coloured sky and combine them in photo editing software.

Worth experimenting though!

Hi Niek, nice shot. I like the vertical format. The composition is good. I think you could do with a little more light on the mountain sides. Perhaps a little highlights and shadows or curves? Well done.

Hi Alexei, this is a very nice post. Lovley colours from the rose and very good sharpness on the Eristalis. I really like the composition too as it has tow focal points, the fly and the centre of the flower. Great stuff. Well done.

Hello Greg, I hope you are well. I recognise these water borne beauties but I can't think of their name!

Lovley shot, very alien looking. Great compositon straight up like this and super details. Very well done.
