Here's a little brown-on-brown. This is actually one of the sharpest macros I've ever taken if viewed at 100%. Wish the lighting was a bit better, but I'm still proud of this one.

Agh!

Thanks for all the comments guys, making 4th is a really big step for me, since I'm used to placing like 40th :)

About the border...lately I've been playing around with borders and this one was no different. It may have looked better if it had a title or something underneath it to give the border a "purpose," but otherwise maybe I shouldn't have included it. It might have cost me a ribbon...heh, oh well I'm still extremely happy with my placement.

Thanks again!

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo with an excellent finish. I do wonder how this would have placed without the thick border. That tends to hurt more than it helps.

This picture is amazing! Nice work. If I could change just one thing it would be the piece of bark in the lower left corner. It is just a bit distracting.

12/20/2006 06:21:04 PM
Yuck...I can't believe I'm giving a fly a score of 10. The photo is just to perfect to go lower.

The thick border detracts from the image. I am also not really seeing brown as a focus so much as just another color amongst others.
