Hi Frank,
Great POV, and a beautiful macro with very nice contrast and colors. Some sharpen would do good,please check the WS version. TFS

Nice close up, though as has been said a little extra sharpening would improve it.

Hello Frank,
Fine sharp macro of this cicada. The flash worked well to create a good BG and lighting.
Pity we missed this on when we were in Australia just over a year ago.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Great macro Frank with excellent details and colors.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, color, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: sharpness (attention to Selene's Workshop,) notes.

I don't like it: nothing to grumble.

Impressive contrast against the black bottom (is this a natural o prepared background?)
Nice post.
Greetings... Ricardo

Hi Frank,
A stunning macro picture. Razor sharp and crisp clear image. Vivid colors with all details clearly seen. Very well done.

Hi Frank

What an amazing macro!
The magnification here is really impressive!
Also the details and their sharpness is fantastic, the light is great and thecontrast with the BG very good.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Frank,
Very nice composition with an amazingly colourful cicada. Sharpness can be a little more pushed, on my own. Congratulations.

Amazing shot! The contrasting colours and sharpness look magnificient. But even though the closeup makes the creature look like a beautiful alien, it is difficult to make out how it looks. May be it wud have been better if you had included a little bit more of the body. Anyways, great shot.
