Cool capture! I scored this a 9 during the challenge. Great job on the composition and focus. Beautiful.

I like the shot and the perspective, but it appears to be a little flat. Not sure if a contrast and bump in saturation would help or just make it look over processed but its definately a nice shot.

Very weird-looking insect, but then - a lot of insect look weird! Nice tonal range with the green background and complementary colours in the legs.

Cool guy! Technically this looks like a very well executed macro shot. Well done! I do however have problems geting too excited by this kind of shot
(insect/flower macros...) sorry. All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

Wow scary looking thing! I would hate to run into one of these! I like how blurred the background is, really isolating the subject.

I like the background and the plants. The insect is great and is cropped just right. My only pick is lack of detail in the body of the insect due to backlighting I assume, but the DOF is good and overall it's still a great shot
