Waiter! What's this fly doing in my soup?

Well sir, from here it would appear to be the backstroke.

Very nice detail on the wings and te edges of the tines.

Good composition, and the lightine looks overexposed, but it is effective, I think.

Nice composition, interesting idea.

Funny and good.

Nice detail and shallow DOF. The white BG works really well. Well done.

Keep it up...

good idea but the details of the fly are completely lost in shadow. you may have intended the silouette effect but I think it just presents a dark blobby spot in the middle of the frame. I do like the details in the fork tines, though.

Wonderful use of DOF - I really like how just the tips of the fork, the nearest prong and the fly are in sharp focus. Also a nice composition with really strong use of negative space. Like the black and white feel.

Cool! I like the strong backlighting and silhouette a lot. So many people love to shoot forks, eh?

interesting lighting technique

Stunning view of the wings, good macro.

Very original. I love the details and the use of negative space.

Good depth of field - and strong graphic elements to this one; I do just feel that the halfway-to-silhouette of the fly seems a touch undecided - i'd either have lightened it or darkened it, myself. Excellent detail on the wings and the cutting of the tines.

Almost looks like an x-ray. Fantastic colours and lighting. 10 only wish I could give you more.
