Bon jour Edith,
beautiful picture of this red Pyrochroa. Well presented from this point of view and with respect to the background. Exellent composition, framing and colours. A little more sharpness would have been nice.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Édith,
Ceci est une macro très réussie! Bravo,les détials sont excellents ainsi que la prise de vue et la profondeur de champs et le beau BG. Bien vu!

Hi Edith,
Wonderful colour and contrast. Good DOF although the antennae seem a little strange. Perhaps due to post processing? Very good POV and composition. Well done.

Bonjour Edith,
belle capture. Il y a de bons détails et de belles couleurs.

Hi Edith,
Nicely composed picture. Nice DoF. Sharp, except for the anthena. Nice frame. [Now, I see a nicer signature on your photo]

Hi Edith,

Superb shot, the composition is lovely with a great pose, the detail is excellent with lovely colours, the image has been nicely isolated from the blurry BG too, well done.

TFS Hilary :o)

i am more interested in images than insects per se...so this is good for me
bright and contrasty colours make me like this shot of an interesting bug..and its simplicity of construction...just a big antennae, mouth parts..mobility head and body..
the diffusion..is that the focussing effect you refer to..?

Hermosa composición y agradable BG Edith.
El color es excelente al igual que el contraste. Buenos detalles.
Saludos amiga.

Hi Edith!
Very cute red bug with strange, comb-like antennae.
Great POV, DOF, colours and details.
Well edited and well framed.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hello Edith,
Fine portrait of the Cardinal Beetle. If you ahd the antenna sharp this would have been perfect, but its very good anyway.
TFS, Regards, Ivan

Hello Edith,
This is a beautiful image!
Full of contrasting colours and pleasing lines, the macro work is well done with super details in the insect...
Well framed and presented in this fine composition!

Hello Edith,
Excfellent close up.POV,sharpness,colors,BG,lighting,framing and composition are wonderful.

bonjour edith
il semblerait que ton lien ne fonctionne pas,je vais donc en mettre un que j'ai trouver de mon cote ici .
le BG est parfaitement flou et de plus je vois que tu as fais ton cadre en opposant le mauve du coin superieur droit.pour cela PS est super.
la couleur de l'insecte est bien naturelle et vive,de plus j'aime les details des antennes.

Bonsoir Édith
Elle est très belle cette prise de vue avec ce beau spécimen aux couleurs sobres mais parfaitement exposée. Les détails sont superbes et la netteté excellente.

Merci pour l'envoie...JP

Hi Edith,
Fantastic colour of this beetle and I like the antennae! Excellent shot and nice POV.
TFS, Ulla

Hi Edith,
I immediately saw this one in your portfolio page.
It has very nice colours, the compo is very simple and good.
A bit puzzled about the purple framing.

Excellent shot,lovley colour,nice POV.TFS!!!

this is a great image. clear and sharp. i love the contrast of the smooth texture of the bug against the seemingly rough texture of the leaf.
Good contrasting color as well.

Tres belles couleurs et composition.

Bonjour Edith,
Beau coleoptere, j'aime son coloré et comme tu as photographié lui en détail. Belle composition. Merci pour les workshops Salutations

oui, ok, d'accord, il n'est non seulement beau ton coléoptère mais la photo est réussi sur tous les plans. L'animal que je connais aussi est petit et agile, donc ce n'était pas facile. Mes compliments!

Hello Edith!
Very interesting species mainly because of its rarity here on TN :)
Macro is good but on the other hand a little better DOF would be nice.
Anyway, nice coleopterological presentation :)
