Wow! talk about blending in. Flawless composition and framing on this shot. The Exposure looks to be right in the money here. The detail is very sharp here! Perfect DOF gives a nice OOF backround! Well done no matter what number it is.
Hi Nigel, a great improvement from your original image, though according to the rules of the site this should of been posted as a Re-post of the original so the 2 images become linked like a workshop.
Had a quick look at your other images and cannt see how I missed seeing them and commenting, they are all very good, you catch on fast I think

that's a cute moth, it seems it has snow on the back - a wonderful white painting.
Excellent sharpness, I like it, thanks

Amazing mimicry, Nigel.
Nature is full of wonder.
Your excellent focus and exposure bring out the texture of the moth wings very well and show how well the camouflage works.
Great job and TFS. : )
Happy 2006 to you and your family, Nigel.
Thanks for all your wonderful posts and your great help. : )

Wow Nigel! I had to open this one up to see what we had:)
As Scott says, "talk about blending in."

we have this up here too, and it's very difficult to find.
Good details, nice colours and good DOF.
You did a very good job.

Wow Nigel, what a great find! The moth certainly looks like a twig off the tree. Good sharpness and colours. Well done, thank you.
PS. I just read your notes Nigel. We can learn by critiques given to us not from praise, that is if we are open to receiving others' honest thoughts. This just shows how much you have improved. I knew NOTHING about PP work, etc, or noise either, and I have left my first posting up as a lesson for me and others.

A perfect shot!
Fantastic details ot the moth!
Very good POV!
Perfect exposure and excellent colors Nigel. A very good POV, sharp detail & excellent DOF also. I think the tree itself adds good interest, with all the details seen in the bark there. Very well done.

This is a very interesting species. I know it very well as it is common in Poland.
Here you used a classic approach to sjow its entire beauty!

Nigel, what a perfect camouflage.
Great pov and composition. I like bg too.
I think Howard's workshop did improve the image.

Very good! It's good example of defensive colors insects(animals) can have. You have got this very well against different background. Good sharpness and details.

Stunning capture, nature never ceases to amaze me with camoflauge. This almost looks like a mammal with fur. Great capture!

Only number six?!! Excellent job. The image has composition and clarity. No distracting details in the background and good DOF. Great job even for # 6000.

I like this moth so very well comouflaged. Both the moth and the tree has beautiful texture and colors.

Sharp shot of an unsual and often "overlooked" subject. Better than the first posting. Good colours and contrast. Remarkable texture. Interesting note. TFR (Thanks For Revisiting!).
