    Very nice out of focus colours.

    Great use of DOF to focus attention on the subject. Love the detail and rich colour.

    MAny thanks for your nice comments, I'm glad you liked it :) The red background is a red rose. I shot with a Raynox 150 Closeup attached to the lens, that's what makes the background so unsharp. The ladybug was thankfully very collaborative and kinda "posed" for some seconds in various leafs before going :)

    i like the composition here, with the red / green balance. The jagged edge of the leaf adds good contrast

    I love the way this shot divides into three distinct areas. Great composition. And who doesn't love a ladybug.

    What a great representation for the theme. The colors are striking and red certainly is front and center. High in my TT's.

    very nice image … composition and lighting look good, the red behind the leaf and bug with the black background make it all work.

    Wonderful image, the reds are brilliant and the red background complements the little bug. I headed out to the botanic garden looking for the same subject but there was some event going on and the place was packed so I had to leave... This is very high in my fav, maybe #1.

    Nice shot of the bug, with the background red color a good addition. Might like to darken the green a bit.

    Definitely my top favourite in this challenge. It's nicely composed with good details in the subject and leaf, and a lovely, abstracted background. I don't know what the layer of red is, but it makes a great separation between the greens and backs up the red theme beautifully.
