This is a comment from the Critique Club;
Had a look at some of your other stuff and I must comment on that - You have some great talent my friend, think you let yourself down with this entry (just a little bit)

First of all - let me tell you what I like -
Great composition, Interesting subject, Lovely colours, nice tecture.

What would I have done diferently -
If it was me, I would've made the DOF less. Try to get more of the shell in focus (also the carpet) to get more green in with the red.
Little bit of detail is lost on the crabs "face". Maybe a tad lighter with a bit more contrast.

All in all, a very good image. You must've had a lot of patience with this shot. These guys are small and shy.

What also might've influenced the lower score is the fact that not alot of people know what this is.

Great work - KEEP IT UP. Remember that this is "in my opinion".

This is a comment from the Critique Club;

First of all, let me tell you what I like - Like the colours of this shot. Fits in nicely with the Challenge. I also love the idea of the bee on the flower - Nice detail.

Stuff that needs work - Your image seems a bit soft - could do with some Sharpening - Especially on the yellow flowers and the bee.
Try using a bit more DOF. Your background is a tad distracting. OR you could make the background a solid colour by placing a background there. Black would've worked nice here.
The yellow on the flowers are a bit blown out. When taking a photo - rather underexposed than overexposed. Underexposed photos can still be worked on, but when the are blown out - nothing much you can do.
You can always try to change the angle of the shot as well - maybe get the bee on the purple flower in focys and use DOF to get the yellow flowers in the background. This will draw the viewers attention to the bee.

Lastly let me say this - although this is a good effort, you must always remember that there are thousands of flower shots out there. People will compare your flower shots to others (maybe they just paged through a gardening magazine etc) and this will influence your rating. You need to do something above the ordinary for your flower shot to stand out. Voters at DPC like to see Clear, Sharp, colourful images.

Good luck with other entries.
