Very many thanks to Sameer for his invaluable assistance with picking up the snail from our patio and transporting it to this leaf outside :)
I wish this were advanced editing so I could clone out that spot on the leaf!!

bokeh is great - lovely motion in the image, which produces a nice juxtaposition with the snail. great work

Needed the title on this one to really tie it into the challenge, but it's a fantastic shot with great lines. My only little gripe is that the snail's antenna blends right into the edge of the leaf. Great job!!!

If I were in Las Vegas, I think I would take the under that there would be two photos with snail in them on a road challenge. Both of them are pretty good photos. Great color and detail. The shallow DOF works well to highlight your subject. Well done!

love how the background, fuzzy as it is, still provides a countering diagonal for the foreground. The snail seems to be at the juncture of forces greater than it can understand. I can relate! 9.

Pretty good idea - connecting the slow and the fast (roads are menat to be fast). The contrast gives the close-to-nature feeling.

I like how the background appears to be one big motion blur - it manages to isolate the subject in a manner true to the title: that is, amidst the torrent of yellows and greens in the background, the sharply-focused snail implies a deliberate, plodding pace. I have a feeling this will be marginalized due to its open interpretation of the challenge, but I like it. Good job.
