Olympus E-620       17th place, 64 points
1/13s, f11, ISO 100, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: straighten, crop, usm, resize       Extra Info: never really liked bug shots myself. and after seeing some of the phenomenal macro bug shots of some of our members here, i was a bit hesitant to submit this shot. it is a departure for me from the things i normally shoot.
i think i had at least fifteen minutes to work with this, so i had time to get out the tripod and try few different angles before the lighting changed.

    This is an excellent bug macro! Also - what a great capture, that you have the bug still there with the 2nd skin before it eventually left. I hope this inspires you to get more bug macros!

    A little selective lightening on the head and shoulders would bring this up another level. Already very good though.

    You've done a great job - love the crop and the translucence of the wings against the blurred background.

    The lighting and background make this a very pro looking macro.

    I suspect that this will end up lower than it should because of the subject. That's unfortunate but understandable. This is an excellent capture and the lighting is a big plus. Well done - certainly in my top picks!
