Hi Ricardo,
Those spines look mean... I bet birds think twice about trying to eat that one...;-)
Looks good!

Hi Ricardo,
This looks very good. I really like the composition. Exposure looks good, with very nice colors. Detail is very sharp. Looks like he is walking in the spot light here.

Very good detail, color, DOF and light Ricardo. Set-off very well against the black BG. Well done.
Thank You!

You did well with the bright and sharply focused Cat against the dark background. The reflection of the flash(?) maybe a little strong, otherwise good.

Hi Ricardo

Another great caterpillar shot. Very good POV and lovely detail. Thanks


I think you did a good use of the flash on these blac background shots!
You have a very good delimitation of the subject and gives more sharpness.

Saludos, Petru
