[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another subject from the school vegetable patch.
This time I have not been able to access Exif data on this picture.
Ivan has suggested it is an adult Grasshopper and not a nymph. Thanks, Ivan.
Grasshoppers are common creatures and I feel there is no need to write a general note on them.
Thanks for looking.

We have similar-looking little brown jobs here too Ram, though at present the whole of Scandinavia is covered in the white grip of winter!
The composition is perfect, the lateral POV being taken with nice claity and natural colours against the leaf BG.
As the wings are fully developed I would suggest that this is an adult.
Thanks and kind regards,

Far from spectacular presentation friend Ram with low to moderate sharpness and as a result some detail has been obviously lost. Appreciate your good intention but I think that your equipment are capable of truly spectacular results. If you think that no information is needed here because of the specie popularity then what is the point of your presentation today my friend?

Hello Ram,

Critiques give is very difficult, I find you picture not bad, perhaps a little bit unsharp, but I see everyday also on TN more bad pictures that this image.
Generally not bad to look at.
Colors and presentation are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hello Ram,
nice slanting green line created by he leaf. The grasshopper is lovely in exciting contrast.
The blurry green gives sn rexciting effect to enhance the composition.


Hello Ram,
Very good presentation, with good clarity, good control over the DOF with a nice BG
Well done

Hello Ram,
Beautiful close up in a great diagonal composition. Nice sharpness, excellent DOF and POV. Splendid natural colours, with this darker BG including.

Thank you RAM for sharing your work.

Ciao Ram. Too tender sharp in my opinion. Good light and colours in an interesting compo.


Hello Ram
beautiful image, grasshopper are perhaps common creatures but it is not so easy to capture them correctly, we can see a lot of good details, and it is well seen in the green environment
very good composition too
Have a great WE

Nice shot. Sharply focused with beautiful colours.
