Impressive shot, great DOF and spot on with the focus on the eye, nice catch light.

The image quality might hurt you a bit though the dof is nice. I think this might have done well as b/w.

That sure is getting up close and personal.

With more sharpness/less noise, I really would have liked this much better.

A bit grainy but good DOF and focus on the eye.

Nice use of DOF. Nice contrast between the snake and the green leaves

Good DOF, clarity and subject. The composition is not quite balanced.

The heavy noise spoils this for me a bit, cracking little character though and good composition, I just personally think the image just needs a good denoise and sharpen.

Love the clarity and the capture. Dont like snakes (personal choice not related to overall composition)
