Very nice! Might suggest bringing up the black area at the top of the frame - painting over it to bring it closer to the BG color might be nice. Can you tell me how you manage to use flash on these insects and not make it show? Any advice you can give us?

Normally, I wouldn't like the spectral area in the BG but here I think it works with the noticeable rain drops in the FG.

Hey Ken, I like the nice sharp head and DOF looks good, but the bright blurred body stands out to much with the rest of the image being somewhat dark in tone.

Hey Ken,
I like this as presented.....except for the mentioned body/rear OOF leg brightnes....easy fix with a slight tone down......so very effective and great use of the shalloow DOF......water drops are a really nice addition too!
