Congratulations MCsaba! This is just great and well worthy of the first place ribbon. I haven't been on this site for awhile. It was great to stop by and catch your win. Good for you. Ann C from the CTF and CSLR challenges.

Hey...Whiterook called it, it has to be good! Nice job, very well done. Looks a bit over sharpened in a few places, but overall doesn't hurt much.

The "1" vote is just from an idiot. What kills me is the ones that voted 3, 4, 5 and even 6 on this shot.

Awesome picture! Something different. The drop makes it more interesting and adds a sense of scale. Composition and shallow DOF are great. One of my favorites in this challenge.

Awesome shot!! Great composition, great use of selective focus, and clarity of subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 10:09:15 AM
Very cool macro shot! I like how the ant (?) really jumps out from all the green. The one thing that distracts me though is the reflection in the water droplet. I would expect it to be green or magnifying the lines on the leaf or something similar, instead, to me, it looks out of place. It looks like there is an umbrella, but I've been sitting here for several minutes trying to figure out what the rest of it is.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/11/2007 06:02:52 AM
Very well done! Love the composition, lighting, DOF, bokeh.
