Lovely close up of this Caterpillar, very good detail, although the white is just a little overpowering on the yellow. Maybe to much flash ? Still very nice captire and note. Well done.


Ricardo, nice colored catapillar, good POOV and good birghtnes on it. I hope it become a nice butterfldy.

Great job again Ricardo.
I'm short timed these days so not time for complete critiques.

Regards, Petru

Good Ricardo!
Very beautiful caterpillar!
I like the black BG!
Try to down the flash intensity to not cause OE on white colours.

Excellent closeup. Colours and detail are great. Lighting is very good and I like the composition.

Nicely done

Hi Ricardo

Great caterpillar!! You're teaching me a lot about these creatures, since before I saw these and knew nothing about them. Thanks! Great POV and colour. The POV shows the Caterpillar beautifully and helps build that knowledge I spoke of earlier. Good lighting and BG.

Nice sharp details, wonderful colors. Excellent choice on back ground lets the colors come to life.

Hola Ricardo,
es una muy linda oruga, me gusta el diseño y sus colores. Parece que la has tomado de noche. Bien el flash, tal vez con otro color de fondo la ayude a destacarse más, pero a veces hay que sacar la foto como se de la oportunidad.
buen trabajo.

PD: la próxima foto va a ser de una oruga, casi la publico hoy, me decidí por otra; me gustaría tu opinión y si tienes algun dato.

Hi Ricardo!

Good close-up. Sharp and well exposed. It's was a good decision to place yourself parallelle to the subject to maintain focus all over.
Good work and TFS.
