Just a bit more focus and this would of been a winner. Right on target for the challenge.

The focus ruins a potential great photo. Also the overexposed areas damages it a bit. Sorry...

Looks like an interesting subject, but it would be nice if you could move in a bit closer, and really get some nice sharp focus.

I would have liked for this one to be a little tighter/sharper in focus. But what an amazing find! WOW!

looks like you didn't quite nail the focus...would have loved to see the detail in the spider

This image comes off to me very soft, with near-blown highlights in places. I don't think this particular photo has the makings of a killer entry, but I do think some careful adjustments (such as levels, curves, contrast, sharpening) could help crank it up a notch.

for me there isn't enough detail in this...seems to be OOF

Very soft focus. You may also find a polerising filter is useful to remove the reflections.

Good concept and subject. I really like the composition here. I think this could improve by using a polarizing filter to cut the glare from the water. I like how you combined a bug and a leaf in the shot. Sorta serendipitous.
