Hi Vignesh,
the picture is well composed with good POV.
I like the colours too. But it's soft because of camera shakings, I agree what Haraprasan mention, try to use a tripod.
1/60sec is to long shutter speed to handhold a 180mm lens.
With a tripod you also avoid the forward/towards movment, when
you shot macro's/closeup's just a couple of mm will decrease the sharpness because of the shallow DOF.
Well done.

Hi friend,
Good capture and magnificent shot!Great colours and composition!
Take care Ana:)

Hello Vignesh,
I know studies keep you too busy to attend to your new-found interest in photography. In fact, studies ought to be your first priority. [See, I have been a teacher all my life and can't stop being one even when I'm retired :-)]!
Your capture of a light brown grasshopper is quite good in terms of point of view, framing and composition. One thing that you have to learn and practice is a firm and rock-steady grip on the camera so that the focus comes out sharp.
That is the only shortcoming in this picture, which, I am sure, you will overcome very soon.
Keep shooting on weekends and write as many critiques on TN as you can manage. That would give you good practice in writing English in real life situations and would also earn you the goodwill and advice from some of the leading photographers on TN.
Thanks for sharing your picture and take care.

Hi Vigi,
Hope you today celebrated Ganesh Puja well. Now to the photo. Well this is not a cricket but a nymph of some grasshopper. Capture wise it isn't that good but as the camera is heavy for your tender age it is compromisable. Here the leaf is more focused than the subject you tend to shoot. But the composition is nice. Hope your tripod is repaired. Next time use the tripod and see the result for yourself. Thanks a lot for sharing.
Best wishes

hi vignesh
be careful with the focus
here the speed is not good so your picture is shallow
and unfocused
try with a tripod or more speed
beautiful colors and composition
aleks ;)
see yoo
best wishes
