Perfect DOF! Great lines, composition, contrast, lighting, and color. Really interesting shot!

Amazing composition. I think the backlighting makes it difficult to see the detail on the ant, though.
01/28/2006 10:02:37 PM
nice dof and composition.
01/28/2006 10:41:16 AM
Nice catch & caption; beauty turns up in the strangest places!

Sharp on the leave and the ant.

01/26/2006 07:16:19 AM
Wow, this is a close-up..... I love the curl of the leaf.....
01/25/2006 11:26:39 PM
Very nice composition and use of shallow dof. I love the way my eye goes around right to the bug. Well done
01/25/2006 12:54:36 AM
Beautiful. Nice colors, nice lighting, nice moment.
01/24/2006 06:48:31 PM
Very nice ant! I would have liked the ant even bigger, but there you go...
All this imo, obviously. Good luck!
01/22/2006 04:08:37 PM
Nice macro.. You have to wonder what that ant will do now.

"Having gone through this spiral that is life, My choices are few. Do I end the journey, or begin anew?"

Very nice, good lines and texture here.
01/20/2006 10:40:28 AM
10 from me...good luck!
01/20/2006 04:19:52 AM
Very cool
01/19/2006 10:06:23 PM
Nicely done! Naturally makes my eye follow the leaf all the way to the ant. A+
01/19/2006 07:56:01 PM
Choice of DOF is perfect for this image.
01/19/2006 04:55:28 PM
Great and original shot. the twirrly leaf leads your eye to the ant. Too bad that the light is so bright, but it's a great shot. 8
01/18/2006 10:15:09 PM
Beautiful colors
01/18/2006 01:06:57 PM
Ha, very nice. Like the swirl of the plant and the subject, it's a clever shot.
01/17/2006 01:01:46 PM
i get the dof thing but for some reason the ant still doesn't pop enough for me.
focus issue?
01/17/2006 01:42:21 AM
Great use of shallow DOF. I always thought ants were kinda cute - I must be weird. Nice macro.
01/16/2006 05:19:24 PM
Awesome. Love the DOF here
01/16/2006 03:48:31 PM
I really like the shape formed by the leaf, and the focus is spot on. Great photo.

The spiral of that leaf edge is a wonderful compositional tool and the position of the ant on the very tip of the leaf works very well. Great saturated colours too.
