Special thanks to all who left comments and thanks to all the voters.

Ah yes, the title. I see how it not might fit here. I'll just keep a shot untitled if I get the titlers(dont think this word exists) block next time ;)

I actually had a setup shot but refrained from posting it, it had those bokeh "circles" many of you wanted to see but really liked this all natural non posed shot better.

Here's the outtake, which is fun but I do find something missing. Please look for yourselves,

Thanks

Nice shot. Good composition, like the negative space in this one.

Not a bad shot but I donít see the bokeh effect, the blur background should have a circular pattern to it.

Looks like the lower "road" to me. ;) Nice shot. A little hot on the bug.

Good crisp detailed photo, but with a little too much bokeh

I think making this a bit darker would have helped.

Nice bokeh. Just find the highlights slightly overblown.

beautiful shot! I see this little ladybug walking along, minding his own business, when another ladybug starts traveling up the other branch (running parallel) and it becomes like a race. Awesome use of the bokeh to introduce ideas beyond the subject!!!

I already voted, now back for comments. I gave you a 9 on this shot. Lovely vibrant colors, crisp detail, nice subject and bokeh.

Nice shot, except this looks more like taking the low road.

The lighting is just to harsh on this one. I don't know if it was flash or maybe to much bright sunlight. Toning back the brightness light would have really helped this otherwise well composed and capturedimage. I like the sharpness and the bokeh works too.

Love the ladybird, but the "Bokeh" has no appeal, as it looks a little washed out.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2006 06:09:06 AM
it actually would be the low road, as the high road is in the background :-) lovely shot you should be proud of, good luck

Very well done on the sharpness and clarity of the subject!

love the capture, but the highlights on the lady are a bit to bright.
