Hello Norbert,
Wonderful close up.Eyes are amazing.I liked POV,details,colors,DOF you managed and composition a lot.TFS...:-)

Hi Norbert,
This guy is HUGE! :)
I say this because your low POV makes this extreme closeup even more dramatic..Great details of the face, especially the eyes.
Very well done,

Wow!What a lovely colour. Good detail and I like the full eye contact. Well taken...

Hy Norbert!

Excellent macro, very nice details and collours!

Well done and TFS!


Witaj Norbert,
To jest swietne! Plytka GO i centralny kadr daje super efekt.
Bardzo mi sie podoba!

Hi Norbert,

I am not sure I would want to come eye to eye with this bug but I am sure this is an outstanding macro. Detail is very sharp and where is it supposed to be. What is blurry supports and complements the sharp part. The tight crop works well. The exposure gave you the right depth and a pleasing background. Well done!

These eyes are being added to my list of favourites.

Hi Norbert, I missed this one along the way. Its amazing how sharp you got the eyes on the picture. The colours of the eyes are something you dont notice by just watching. Really good job!
Thanks Reina
