Excellent presentation of a ladybug, Roberto. I like the positioning on the bent blade of grass and the way that draws the eye to the subject. The texture, lighting, clarity and DOF are all handled well to show off your subject to best effect. Is that the shadow of the bug's legs on the blade of grass? If so, that's really outstanding precision.

Well done,
Jim

Beautiful, Nick! I have to agree with Alexei that the 7D and the 400 lens make for a very impressive combination. Great POV, nicely positioned within the frame, and, of course, spot-on DOF.

I like the tight crop, crisp detail, and point of view you've chosen here, Alin. Thanks for the interesting, informative note, too.

Jim

Nice work, Albert, in letting us see these ponderous "pedestrians" :) I'll bet the earth shakes a bit when they walk by. I like the composition, where we can look at their eyes, and I like the way you've cropped and positioned them in the frame for greater emphasis. Your depth of field helps with that, too. It looks you've obtained reasonable clarity under dusty conditions. The only thing that I notice in the possible improvement category is that you may have oversharpened the image a bit. The white blurry fringe around the bigger rhino's ear seems to suggest that. Good image, in any case.

Regards,
Jim

Interesting and informative note, Manyee. I like the composition within the frame in this image. You've isolated a good moment and positioned it well. The reflections in the water add interest, and those long, stitled legs are presented clearly in the second bird.

Jim

Rather impressive capture of just the right moment, Asbed. I like that full-wing extension and the eye-level point of view. Pretty good clarity for this situation -- that 1/1200 shutter speed does a good job of freezing the motion. Very fine results with a point-and-shoot.

Good work, Nilson. The colors are vivid and you have just enough depth of field for good sharpness. Although the background appears to be slightly grainy, it is also nicely blurred to draw the eye to where it should be looking.

A fine portrait of this Big Horn, Janice. I have to think Rick will be pleased with the dedication. Great point of view, excellent sharpness, nice DOF control to keep your subject emphasized and standing out against a rather difficult background for contrast.

Well done!

Hey, Maurie, you've got a pleasing landscape here. The ribbons of low cloud interwoven among the mountains is an unusual sight, and the trio of birds in the foreground is a nice idea. The sharpness is not bad, but I think your choice of aperture is working against you. If you had gone for an aperture more of F/16 or above, I suspect you'd have obtained the front-to-back sharpness you probably desired.

Regards,
Jim

Glad you got the exercise, Ewan! A lovely scene to begin with, I'm sure, but really enhanced by your sunset presentation and the long exposure. The results are quite striking and nicely executed.

Regards,
Jim
