Hi Luis

This is a really nice portait. To bad the eye doesnt look that sharp. I know it is really hard to do that, but i still love the little details. Thanks.


Oh Oh Oh is it a martian :-) Lovely portrait of a preying mantis. at this close up level The DOF is a suspect , the horn behind is sharp not the eye .. may be limitation of the equipment .. try focus stacking next time :-)
