Nice angle on the skull.
Great composition... I like how bits of dead grass and stones are scattered around and over the skull.
Death is a part of nature, and this image really shows it.
Framing is good.
Only thing I can say negatively is that it looks like it is overexposed (very white parts on the skull), and the sepia tone shows this off. Darkening the image a little might actually add to the mood of death, as well as remove the extreme white.
Thanks for sharing.
Focus and details are amazing. Spiders are such fascinating creatures, don't you agree?
My one problem is that you cave cropped out the bottom of its fangs, so the whole spider's face is not complete.
Still, well done! Thanks for sharing.
Extraordinary image. Perfect timing! Brilliant focus and a perfect angle. Well framed.
This photo is almost too good to believe...
Nice intimate shot. It appears a little overexposed, however. Still, I like the composition and the focus is very good.
Framing is original. Odd decision. :P I think it paid off though... it was the framing that made me take a second look at this image.
Welcome to TrekNature!
Excellent image. Composition and framing are great. Just a shame about the focus...
Brilliant first post! I hope you will continue to post at this quality - and above it!!
Notes make it easier for people to make comments and critique your work. :)
Good detail on the flowers and well focussed. Composition is neat and very good. It could be said that having so much of the bottom portion of the image redundant is a bad thing, but in this case it looks good. The background is well blurred, as it should be in this kind of shot, and showing more of it punctuates how clear the cherry blossom are.
When you say you 'turned it around', do you mean you picked up the slug and put it another position?
That is not strictly very natural.
Image is blurry, and there is reflection from the flash - I assume the flash - on the slug's body. This distorts the image.
Also, the border is too big and I think distracting. It seems to have a pattern to it, rather than being blank.
The important thing about the photo is the subject - the slug - and not the border. I suggest thinner borders, and bland. Otherwise the border distracts the eye and can overshadow the subject.
Also, you could try a slightly larger image. Just 50 pixels or so wider, and the same high, without the border, would be very nice. The image would be easier to see, as all the details are larger on the screen.
Amazing. I really was not expecting to see a bee in its mouth. Very well done, indeed.
This is a great shot. Great composition and well framed. The bird is very colourful, and you managed to catch it just at the right moment.
The only thing that lets the image down is the background. It is very dark, and dulls rest of the image's colour.
