Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: On the Edge (Classic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Location: Malta
Date: Dec 20, 2003
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/100
Date Uploaded: Dec 20, 2003

Taken on a rainy day next to the immortal temples of Hagar Qim in Malta. Interesting contrast between the sudden end of life to the endlessness of the structures built close by to the location. P.S. The snail survived. Image unaltered with border added later.

Great idea, very well carried out! But I hope no actual snails were harmed in the making of this photograph. :)

Great picture, concept, angle, lay-out, mood. gave you 8
DOF-wise, I would have personally given more, setting sharpness a little nearer the camera to show more of the landscape from the snails' point of view

Funny!

Great shot... I think it would have had more of an impact if it had been zoomed in closer and concentrated on the snail and shoe.

so near to death! Eww

Good shot! In the edge of death. I found the exposure a bit underexposed and a trouble with subject focus. The snail, is your subject, but its details are not revealed as well as the boot is, by the exposure and focus.

Great shot, maybe a bit of motion in the shoe would have made it perfect!
