The snail looks beautiful. The soft colours, the spirals, the black background to make the snail stand out against the background, all look great. But I feel the presence of the flower has worked against the image. It would have been great if the snail were on the flower or looking at the flower or pointing at the flower or at least there were some kind of interaction between the snail and the flower. But to me these two objects look like two totally unrelated entities put together in a single image, so that the eye (of the viewer) once goes to the snail, then to the flower and gets distracted. Anyways, I really like the snail, I have not seen too many good pictures of snails in treknature. Compliments for such a fine shot. :) Thanks for sharing.

Hi arif ,
Itis very nice macri.
BG is excellent.

Hi Arif, again,
so you are not only a photographer but a poet! The composition is interesting, quite unusual, and fortunately so. Superb light! Some people might comment on the blackness of the background and the artificiality this implies but I don't mind at all.
Well done, Arif. Thanks for presenting the picture.
Best regards

Merhaba Arif,
Oldukça başarılı bir salyangoz sunumu olmuş. Renkler, artalan ve detaylar nefis.
Ancak kadraj salyongoz için daha uygun olabilirdi.
Elinize sağlık.
