Looks a little over-sharpened to me, but I like the idea/composition.

this is a very nice image and I like it that I have to think of a snail in a new way, as graceful...nice light, clarity, motion 8

His life in this blue word is not easy! I would see more air above. But snail is nice and graceful. The blue color is for me too harsh - 6

Interesting take on the challenge. The only thing I'm not sure about is the placement of the subject, I think I might like it a little bit lower in the shot. Otherwise, great job.

Didn't your mother tell you not to play with your food?

The blue doesn't look natural

Nice macro. He's pretty graceful to be tightroping. The curves of the shell also add to the gracefulness. Nice light and clarity. I gave it a 7.

Fun concept and excellent capture.

The smooth background and the edge of the shell, especially on the left, make it look as if the snail is copied into the background. Could also be effect of oversharpening. Nevertheless a good image, good colors, pinsharp, and graceful.

I wouldn't have put a snail at the head of my list of graceful creatures, but this one looks graceful in your picture.

I find the border particularly unpleasant to the extent that it does lessen my enjoyment of the image.
Ignoring it for the moment I like the image quite a lot - the simplicity and the studio rather than natural background works well. In terms of composition I'd like a touch more space above and less below.

What a shot! I don't like the hot spot on the shell, but everything else is so nice, I'm not counting that against you! Nice contrast against the background.

Crystal clear, nice plain background, boarder really helps as well. Great shot.
