The textures really bring this to life. The black of the flies blends in perfectly with the muted colors.

So beautiful, Roz. Could almost be a silk screening or some type of print. Wonderful processing not to mention the capture.

Yet another beautiful one from you!! I like the original, but the processing on this one really makes it look like a piece of art.

the color and the texture and the just plain feeling of this shot is absolutely amazing.

Love this - so delicate and surreal. The colors are outstanding, and the texture on it, too. Really good stuff, Roz.

aaahhhh, so that's what these things are called! I find them in my garden all the time! They look like friggin' huge mozzies! (that would be mosquitoes for the non-Aussies) : )
Excellent processing, although I too prefer the borderless version! : )

I really like the end result~~ Nicely composed. Great balance.

Beautiful colours and composition. The overlays work really well together. I like the subtleness that makes it also painting -like.

Oh Roz this is WONDERFUL! I just love it so much.

My only grumble is the whiteness of the frame - I'd have like to see the full image with no frame - SUBLIME!~

Nice processing here Rozy. Looks like it could be a strip of material from the 30's or 40's. Not keen on the new logo - liked the old one much better.

First the wood beetles, now the crane flies - they're all at it on your firetrail.

We call them a daddy long legs (crane fly) here I think Roz. Excellent spotting by Greg, superb shot and editing by Roz!!!
