This is a winner for me. Stunning use of White to Black here with so many hues of middle to light gray tones. I think Ansel Adams would be proud of this image.

Seems hyper-realistic, knowing that this fly is down to earth, loving how the legs and wings fade to whispers, the articulation of the parts refined through millions of years. The blade of grass, the path unknown. A strong composition. Not sure what's going on in the background, but it's interesting and I think it works. Because it's solitary it demands due attention. How wonderful that it's in black and white.
Personal favorite of the challenge.

Great shot of this fly (?). I think I would have preferred it in colour though.

Why would horror film makers create robots and aliens when they can easily enlarge insects like this one. Terrifying! A great photo.

B/W + Texture does not equal Art. Big bright and glowy green is just as much Art. If you want to make it Art give him a hat or make him decide between his health and his livelihood or reassemble him into a country cottage. Art is a verb! Or is God a verb? Is Art God??
