Well done macro shot with good timing. See the visual critique for potential processing ideas.
Simply stated closeup. The focus and depth of field seem appropriate. See the visual critique for a processing idea.
This is a typical composition of a butterfly (profile with wings closed); what adds some interest is the stem (line) across the upper right corner of the frame. This image gives a frame-within-a-frame feel. See the visual critique for processing ideas.
Good composition and the focus and depth of field are appropriate. See the visual critique for a processing idea.
There is nothing neutral in an image. Elements will either contribute to the visual statement or detract from it. See the visual critique for composition and processing ideas.
Common composition for an insect. The leaf seems to be sharper than the ladybug. A tighter crop, a little more depth of field, and a better focus on the ladybug's head would have strengthened the shot. See the visual critique for the composition idea supporting the closeup challenge and for a processing idea.
Well composed with appropriate depth of field. See the visual critique for a processing idea.
"The Ant and Pink Torch Ginger" would be a good name. Did you see the ant? See the visual critique for processing and sharpening ideas.
Red is a dynamic color, and the background is appropriate for this dramatic image. However, there seem to be some inconsistencies with focus and sharpness. There are also some unnecessary elements entering the edge of the frame. See the visual critique for examples.
Interesting idea, although I'm not sure what the artistic statement is. The image also seems to be over-sharpened. I would not expect the penny to show that much gritty texture. See the visual critique for a processing idea to tone down the grittiness.
