I found this ladybug in my kitchen, so I pick it up and placed it on my house plant. My camera doesn't record ISO.

Good capture; I like the opposing diagonals here! The area of the branch in the foreground is a bit overwhelming. You might consider a crop on the left, perhaps making the picture square which might work nicely with the diagonals. Even if the bug ends up being centered, the diagonals will make it worth breaking the rule of thirds.

There may be a bit of noise here, but I think the overall presentation of the subject makes up for that. Nice macro work and tones throughout. 8 -danny

Nicely done great colors & composistion... a sharper focus and more detail on the lady bug would have helped.

the sharpness and lighting on the ladybird is all that spoils this shot.

Very nice separation of foreground from unsharp background. IMHO the ladybug could have used a bit more exposure. The background would be brighter, but I don't think that would matter much.

This is nice but the background overpowers the ladybug a little.

Outstanding colors and lighting. Seems a bit grainy.

Great composition with the opposing diagonals. Colour seems too orangey to me.

i think the colors are too similar, other than that, the angle helps make this shot very interesting
