This is a great use of DOF ... Looks like the bug's red was painted on though.

Nice use of minimalism. Very good saturation, and I like the dof on this one as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 02:03:10 PM
For once, it looks like a real live (rtather than dead glued) ladybird. Nice photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2006 12:52:48 PM

Excellent use of negative space
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 01:02:05 PM
To me - this one is the winner. Very minimalistic. I love the composition. Nice surprise effect, when you watch it on a smaller screen and have to scroll (like me).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 11:56:10 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2006 06:32:13 AM
Is that a real lady bug? Anyway I do like this photo. The red and green are great! Normally I don't like so much space, but it works well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 11:31:52 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 04:40:57 PM
Great use of depth of field and negative space for a visually striking photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 03:26:14 PM
excellent use of negative space to give impact to an ordinary every day thing.

(^o^)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 04:51:03 AM
I like this, and I find it amazing how you controlled the DOF so well, but honestly there's just too much green space here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/29/2006 01:01:36 AM
Very good use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 02:13:27 PM
This is perfect! A ribbon for sure!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 01:47:45 PM
I like it I like it. So sharp and nice. I would even crop right below the legs.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 06:47:41 AM
I do like this quite a lot but maybe would have cut back on the green from the top just a bit
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 02:13:17 AM
Nice image. I like the contrast of space. Well done.

8 - Oh, good. Just 'if only' more detail in the ladybug and possibly also (wouldn't hurt the shot minimalistic-wise either), even tighter at the bottom to reduce the OOF, in my opinion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 08:39:51 PM
Great use of negative space!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 04:33:05 PM
On of the best I have seen so far, the colors are very bright and the ladybug really stands out. I might have lower the perspective so the concrete or what ever she is walking on was not shown so much but that is just me. Best of luck, a 9 for now
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 12:59:19 PM
Very bold statement, one of my top picks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 09:12:40 AM
HEE HEE - aren't lady bugs cute? Seems a tad oversharp. I like the minimalist approach. Nice use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 08:27:48 AM
Nice composition, but I wouldn't leave so much green background: If you leave the width as it is and crop the height to equal the width the impression would be better!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 08:26:53 AM
too much dead space at the top
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 05:31:44 AM
excellent use of space and DOF. red looks oversaturated, though - 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 04:45:53 AM
wow she's indeed very little
excellent use of negative space.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 11:21:18 PM

Good use of negative space.

SO cute.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 07:42:39 PM
This is a great shot. I am afraid that you might have over saturated the lady bug, but shhhhhh, don't tell anyone and maybe they won't notice. This is great use of space!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 07:28:04 PM
One of my favourites, I love the negative space and the DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 05:16:14 PM
I really like the negative space here....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 03:51:30 PM
Super cool shot. Would like to see a little for DOF, but the color and composition are very good. "A little bug in a big world."
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/26/2006 12:36:50 PM
This should score well. I love the minimalistic approach.
