Hi Seyfi.
I am amazed with fluffy beauty, which is shared by you. You have reflected its texture and colouration as well as all other details of the insect perfectly. Natural and nicely blurred surroundings supplement the main subject perfectly. Composition is spot on and direct POV is very impressive too. Kind wishes and TFS.

Hi Ram.
I have never seen Moon from such POV :). It is very attractive. Full Moon is not the best subject for shooting. It is difficult to show details of the surface. However< you have solved this task and we can see wonderful Moon picture. Warm regards and bets wishes.

Hi Akbar.
Downsizing eliminates the noise perfectly. Shared shot is clean and nice. I like excellent exposure and precise reproduction of the bird plumage. Main subject is isolated (by sunlight and blurriness of the surroundings) from BG greatly. Excellent job. TFS.
