Love snails, me! These guys are great. Compostion is a little too centred though, but they're in great formation. :)

Here's one of mine:

You and your snails! Cool stuff, Mav!

So close to knocking your off center shot off as far as score goes lol Oh well. Great effort though. You know if you use snails every week you will have a fantastic average score. They seem to be great models and totally bring your average up :)

Good work :)

Maybe I had the idea in my head from hearing stories about it all week, but this reminds me of the landing craft approaching the Normandy beaches on D-Day.

Whoa, cool photo! Great detail and color pallete. DOF is nice and I like the way the camera angle looks slightly skewed .... 8

Very good, my only criticism is the front snails antennae and shell covering the rear heads a little.
I haven't penalised the shot for this, I love it.

Awesome shot = ) Slight color variation in the background, but nothing too serious. -9-

This is great! Must not be easy trying to coordinate snails so I do give you extra brownie points for getting two out of three sort-of facing the same way. I also really like the lighting and how it shows details of the shell and the surface of the snail. Focus is amazing as I can even see the small beady eyes of the foreground snail. I would rather see more space in front of the snails in this type of composition than equal on both sides as they appear to be moving from left to right. I won't deduct this time because I like this photo. 9

Excellent. Crisp, clear, and well composed.

How did you get them to hold still long enough to take the picture?

Nice work, the slight angle works great, 9

It's hard to get a large DOF being this close (macro) to a subject, even with a very fast lens.. I'll assume this is the effect you were after, but I keep wanting to see detail on the other snails. 6

Pretty snails. I would like it better with more dof. The first snail is sooo nicely done.

very cool.

Excellent image. I love the DoF on this one with each snail sllightly furhter away and the white background is super. There is something nice and simple about this shot.
