Translated - The Snail has the Apple (I think?)

Wasn't going to enter this challenge, however, my wife absolutely loved this image and thought that it would score well (she thinks it will be one of my highest...we'll see). Plus...I absolutely hate not being able to hit the update button and didn't want to go through withdrawal for an entire week!!!

This is wonderful. I love the symmetrically round edges of the apple and how you've captured the circular pattern on the snail. Such a crisp clear picture!

Good color. Good focus. Interesting subject... most snails around here are brownish without the interesting pattern this one has. I like this very much.

wow !!! very nice colors. I am not sure how you achieved the not so shallow dof, but stil such blurred background. This should do pretty well

This is a nice image. I really like how the background is blurred out and how the viewer is really focused on the detail and texture of the subject.
