Congrats on the ribbon! It gives me hope that perhaps, there's change coming in what should be on the front pages. Nicely done! :)

Perfect sharpness on the subject... and it's lovely!

I would have cropped off the bottom third and some of the right side... but I didn't score as highly as you did. :)

CONGRATS on your ribbon!!

I agree with Johanna that the thumbnail doesn't do this image justice. When you click on it, it's like WOW!!!! Congrats on your ribbon, super shot.

This is my fav for the blue. Very crisp focus on the mantis! Looks like he's peeping through a window or something!

Good focus. In my opinion you could've tweaked up the contrast to get in more colour.

The thumbnail SO does not do this image justice. Fabulous capture. Totally "Hi! Thought I'd drop by!". Great dof and colors. I hope people take the time to check this out.
