I went down to the garden to take some pictures and found these little guys all over the place. I had no idea they were eating all my plants! Anyhow, I shot this little guy on a citrus leaf against the blue sky. I sprayed the leaf with a squirt bottle just to make it a little more interesting. I then increased saturation and adjusted the greens and blues hues to darken the sky and make the leaf look more vibrant.

Two 1s? Name and shame I say! - and the 2s and 3s? Just plain bad taste I suppose! ;)

Beautiful! Love the rich, saturated colors and the nice use of negative space to accentuate the caterpillar. --10

Next time with such a good shot do put it thru Neat Image to remove the noise. The Blue part is too noisy

Nice shot but I would have cropped some of the blue sky out as it is too blue and empty

Top 3 for sure-- great shot!

Stunning-- one the best I see so far--

Wow, what contrasting colors.. I assume the blue is not sky, unless you are in Montana... Great shot

I like this shot, very simple, yet very interesting. Very good details and color..
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the contrast in the colours works well for this shot.

And we have a winner. This shot has it all. Super composition. Great color. Sharp focus. A 10.

nice colors, but a flip horizontal would help, I did try it and it looks better. good work

Very simple composition that works well, beautiful colours. The background seems a little noisy/ pixellated... does it need NeatImage, or was it caused by NeatImage? Not quite sure about the lighting on the caterpillar... having looked at the other entries, it would seem these are tricky things to light! It's the shadow here that detracts for me... perhaps some way of diffusing the light on the subject would have been helpful. The water drops are a nice touch 8

Amazing, terrific color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2003 09:30:57 PM
fantastic colours - a chomp out of the leaf would have matched the title more - but it's a 10 for me anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice! i love the graphic feel and colors. very clean and simple.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I saw one too many bugs in this contest. But this is by far the best. The color of the sky against the green leaf, the water drops, and the little buggy are all excellent.

Whow - highly impressive! Your composition (and the choice of colors) works simply great here. Good luck for the challenge!

Nice primary colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2003 12:29:37 PM
Excellent primary colours (though the blue seems a little too rich) and good composition. Reminiscent of Jacko's "Round and Round" entry. I like this a lot.

brilliant eyecatching color composition :)
beautiful macro shot.

Been busy with the spray mist! Nice colours and good DOF. I'd like to see the caterpillar closer though and it would have made the shapes more dynamic as more of the green spanned the width of the shot. [7]
