Congrats 4 the Photo.

"Hello", excellent titre pour annoncer le retour de ces sympathiques criquets. Très beaux détails malgré la profondeur de champ un peu limitée pour les pattes. Par contre, la tête et l'oeuil sont splendides Avez-vous esayé à 1/250 et f/8? J'aurais aimé pouvoir l'identifier. Avez-vous une photo d'ensemble?

Owwwwww This Macro is Incredible !! Hohoo Congratulations !!

Hi Louis
Good mug shot of this ‘hopper', even on the thumbnail the details are great. I would slightly increase the crop on the top, so as to add the tip of the antenna, and clone in some green on the hot white on the perching leaf. Nice shot overall.

Surprenant, la netteté des détails, les couleurs, la prise de vue et le BG qui contraste très bien avec le sujet. FÉLICITATIONS !

Great macro shot here. A great angle to get the wonderful blue sky. The detail and color are fantastic. Very sharp, and very good work!

I wonder how many viewers have seen a grasshoper this close, not many I'll bet. Its a great mug shot even if the DOF is not quite deep enough to get the legs. Still a good shot.

¦wietne makro! doskona³a ostro¶æ, piêkny b³êkit nieba.

Great close-up, stunning details on its face. I would clone out the spots on right BG.
Well done.

Very good close up Louis. Nice DOF and good colours. Well done

Wauw J Louis,
I like the shot a lot. I am looking for another camerera and my thought are the powershot pro 1 for his super macro shots, you give me here an example, very good macro with very good colours and details, great job

Great macro, Louis! Very sharp and colorful. I like the background.

I love the composition you have taken, the detail is fascinating. The eyes, the antennae and the colour of the grasshoppers skin. I was just wondering, what type of lens did you use? And what was the zoom in.


Great macro shot! Beautiful blue sky. The bright sunlight created that stark shadow across its face though. I love the hairy details on the body. The DOF is just right for the body. I guess you could increase it by using f/8 but then the background starts to appear as well.

This is a great profile head shot Louis! Excellent POV and details. The blue sky adds greatly to the impact of the photo while making the grasshoppers head seem larger than life..Nice work P.P. on the sky also. Very well done!

The first thing I thought when I saw the thumbnail was: whoa! The colors!

The large picture astounded me even more. The angle is magnificent, and the details (that eye!!) against the bright blue sky make this combination a winner. Very beautiful, thanks for sharing!

What a shot - like a monster!
So beautiful colours, so close and sharp.
I'm a litte bit jealous :-)

Looks like something out of a science fiction movie - "Attack of the 50 Foot Grasshopper". Brilliant color and sharpness. The low angle really makes the shot.

Wow, beautiful macro!
The colours are really good!
Bye Tom
