The poses are fantastic and the sharpness is wonderfully adjusted Babak!
Nice exposure, especially thinkiing of the difficulty of geting so many branches with different brightness right!
Very beautiful and I guess hard to take shot. I only once saw a Goshawk, flying way high above some wood. And that was a real WOW! Now I can imagine it is to get so close for a shot!
As for the WS, I'm a fan of out of center compositions, thus I like the version you put up better, though I have to agree with Mousehull, that the tiny piece of beak is distracting. Maybe there could be median solution?
Just a few tips to get you started:
Put your up shooting details, people will make use of them when critiquing
A detailed note will get you more views and comments
The spider looks very good. Sharp details, good composition, nice DOF, great frame and wonderful colors!
I guess, this is a very primitive spider, belonging to the Mygalomorphae... But I very well may be wrong. Asking for correction!
Smiles and welcome again
Again I have to say that I adore your keen sense for a good composition. If the picture was but a little bit sharper, it would have been a great hit!
Again your eye for a good composition! I agree with Cedryk that a closeup would reveal much more detail, but even so many of us(including myself) often forget to compose their pictures in a nice manner.
I made a workshop for you, and changed the color levels to get a more lively scene. Tell me how you like it!
Good job and TFS
a very beutiful composition. The choice of the colors and POV is very good. The only problem is that the upper parts of the shells are OOF. This is most probably because of the wide-open aperture of 2.6 that you've used.
This a great picture, and it's very good to see how young one can start looking at nature and seeing the beauty in things.
Smiles to you
Great composition with the other debris in the upper part.
A perfect shot!
Especially as I'm absolutely in love with tight framings. But everything else is perfect as well: the color, DOF, POV and all the other abbrevations are just in place. Keep up the great work!
Smiles and the best to you,
Nice shot! I guess it must have been quite difficult to get the exposure, with all the sun on the grass in the BG!
The pose and framing(except for the missing horn tip ;) ) as well as the POV are very well chosen!
Thanks for sharing,
