I think it's a great shot. I'd like to have seen the moon just a little sharper, though not so sharp as to detract from the main focal point of the photo. Tell me, did you walk around to include the moon, or take the shot without thinking much about it? Either way, good to have included the background.
You must be a real child of nature to have gotten this guy to pose so well for you! I love his look over his shoulder at you. There is plenty of detail, enough to clearly make out his eyes, and I particularly like the blue background that is split in two by the greenery. Just enough color added to prevent the shot from getting lost. Great job.
A very good closeup. There may be a little overexposure, but I think the trade-off for that is the nice highlighting of the fuzzy body of this hoverfly. Hope you stick around and do more postings. As was already stated, there's a wealth of information here on Trek Nature.
This photo reminds me that I simply MUST visit the Grand Canton before I die. That it inspires me should also express that I really enjoy this photo.
A great photo, one of my favorite. The colors are vibrant and the mood is somber and peaceful. I cannot detect a single spec of algae or anything else that tells me this fish is not floating through air. Great work.
The different colors of the butterflies lends a feeling that is adversarial, yet peaceful at the same time. I've tried to scan prints to post here, but simply don't like the way mine look. I think you did a good job, considering these were not originally digital photos.
Your photos continue to inspire me. I love the color here and the time of year is very apparent. I also was educated by your little note about your umbrella choice. Thank you!
Beautiful colors and interesting textures. I would crop it very close for a nice abstract. I like the curves.
I like the picnic table being included... it causes the mind to consider both images seperately, and together. The overexposure works for me, because it is not just the table that is overexposed, but the entire shot, blending from left to right. One part of a photo overexposed can be distracting, but done graduated like this, it appeals to me.
I think the sharpness is good enough. I like the moment in time in which you captured this, because it reminded me of when, as children, we'd let them climb to the tip of our fingers and watch them fly off. The wing spread was our signal they were about to make their move. Did you get on the ground for this angle?
