Hoi John,
Prachtige opname, met een perfecte helderheid en super mooi detail. De kleine scherpte diepte is perfect, en geeft de volle aandacht op de kever. Misschien is het blad is te groen, maar dat durf ik niet met zekerheid te zeggen.
Groeten,
Niek

John??? Bienvenido nuevamente!!!
Un verdadero placer volver a verte en TN luego de tanto tiempo y con tus más de 700 presentaciones en TE.
Una estética imagen con excelente punto de vista que junto al encuadre elegido conforma una bella composición.
El escaso DOF utilizado genera un gran foco sobre la cabeza del insecto y un OOF hacia atrás muy agradable.
Intensos colores y un marco sobrio completan la imagen de tu regreso.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Salut John,

Vraiment vous ętes trčs fort, toutes les images sont abouties.
Excellente image ici, les détails sont fins, et l'opposition de couleur trčs intéressant. La profondeur de champ réduite ŕ son charme.

Hi John,
An excellent macro composition here. Very rich vibrant color saturation. Sharp detail with a nice gradual falloff in the DOF.
Looks great!

Hi John,
Not a macro specialist - but excellent results!
Very good details and I like the way you captured it on the tip of the leaf.

Hi John.
Very nice first (not because first) close-up shot and welcome to our community.
I like your subject and perfect reproduction of the bug and selected POV. Colors and lighting are very good too. DOF is shallow a bit (lower aperture value is more convenient) and the point of focusing is displaced hardly forward as it seems to me. However, well done and TFS. Waiting for your new pictures. Best regards and TFS.

Belle photo, cet insecte a été bien pris et les détails sont biens. Amicalement Thomas

Hi John,

I hear you're quite a legend! Nice to meet you.
Great shot, full of detail. The bug is inquisitive of you! Perhaps he'll make himself a bit more attractive next time...

Nice sharpness right on his snout. There is some compression.noise in parts of the BG but I can see the overall shot is a good clear and bright one.

Nice work

Hello John. Trek Nature is one of the most strict sites among trek sites. I have a few flowers removed because they are cultivated. This bug looks good on the green leaf. Nice lighting with the subject placement in good framing. Well done John and keep posting for us to see. Best regards. Jusni

Ciao John. Your first on TN! Exciting colour, good detaisl and light.

Hi John.

Hello John,

TFS
Best regards
Maurizio

Hi John,
Wonderful first post - but we all who ever saw your gallery on TE know what a skilled photographer you are. Splendid macro shot with perfect focus on the bug's head, nice warm color tones and pleasant composition. Even the background is complicated, it isolates the main subject very well due to the color contrast. Brilliant capture MF. Bravo.
Have a nice weekend, friendly regards, László
