Hi Jitti,

It's interesting to see this shot of the Milipede after seeing it all curled up. Amazing colors and shadings and super sharp details. The black is great against the sandy background.

Fine design of this little fellow, hehehe!

Macro work is well done, with sharp fine details in the narrow DOF!

Hello Jitti

Excellent focus and sharpness.
The details and textures are wonderful.
Very good low POV and DOF.
Good lighting and lovely natural colours.


Hello Jitti !
I've been absent for a long time, and I see I've missed many pictures from you - this one I like particularly, for I love these kind of strange creatures. There are some excellent details on your animal, and I also like composition, POV and BG, the millipede stands out very nicely. Well done !
