Loved the processing on this, such rich blacks - a grasshopper made of metal. :) Backlighting is great, nice texture detail in the plant.

Nicely backlit. Great detail on the little hopper. Would love to see the color version of this as well.

Excellent. I love that the grasshopper is not green, that's he's shielded in armor, prepared for any bird that should decide he's its dinner. And he's looking out of the frame, at some good looking grasshopper on that branch that goes out of the frame in lower right. Excellent flow here and a great image.

My first thought was that the leaf in the lower right is extraneous and distracts from the grasshopper. But now I'm thinking it balances the dark area in the upper left nicely. Either way, the use of darks and lights directs my eye nicely to the grasshopper.

Love the dark tones. Looks like a picture that's part of a story book.

Great detail on the grasshopper! Not sure how I feel about the composition; the dark shape on the left echoes the curve of the plant's branch/stem, but draws an awful lot of attention away from the grasshopper and plant (which interest me more).

Nice image - Nice and crisp - Maybe a tad heavy on the PP
