excellent image... this is perfect depth of field settings for this shot and the texture on this 'creature' is phenomenal :) = 8 - jmsetzler

interesting texture - for a slug. depth of field works nicely in back

The subject matter in this photograph does not appeal to me, but it fits the idea of texture very well. Technically, the main subject is sharp and the background is nicely out of focus. The exposure is also correct. One thing that hurts the quality, however, is the JPEG compression artifacts. The picture is only 44K in file size and the rules allow up to 150K. Saving this picture at a higher JPEG quality level would have improved the detail. *5* -balynch

That's a cool looking, ummm, well whatever it is, it is cool looking to me. I think it might work in the Corporate World challenge as well. Haha. the focus works really well here. karmat

I would have liked the light to come more on the side, why don't you have turned him to get a better exposure ? Hmm... Well, forget it :) Nice macro shot, nice DOF, congratulations.

Nice capture of a black subject.

Le escargot! Excellent display of texture both before and after cooking (chewy with a gristle texture). Good composition, color and DOF. -7

Wow, excellent macro. amazing.
07/22/2002 09:40:00 PM
Ouch! I can almost feel this guy crawling over the rough ground.
07/22/2002 06:32:00 PM
It's a...whatzit? Slug? Weird...Nice pic though.
07/22/2002 02:55:00 PM
wow, GREAT JOB! I gave you a 9, background would have to be in focus for a perfect 10.

Lots of texture, but photo just doesn't "jump out" at me.

i wouldlmn't want to meet him in a dark alley. He would probably slim me

Comments on this photo should be taken with a pinch of salt, which is just how I like my slugs. Very well done.
07/22/2002 03:12:00 AM
hey, two textures in one shot. good deal. I like the dark slug thing against the light rock background. you might try composing it differently, though. maybe shoot at his antennae head on or something to give the shot more of a point of interest.

shiver !

ok that's great texture. My only change would be to crop some off the top
07/22/2002 01:25:00 AM
It's all texture, all right :) Personally would have cropped it out at the top just beforewhere the ground gets dark.
