Hi Carlo. I agree that ants are difficult subjects - I haven't had much luck with them, yet. Excellent DOF and I like the even lighting. The ant gave you a great pose showing off its whole head. I wonder if the whole image could be just a little brighter? I'm seeing sharpening halos around the ant so you might want to back off a bit on the sharpening. Otherwise, this is very well done!

Yep, ants just do not like to sit still...therefore no luck yet on my side too! Awesome IQ here, love the details. Comp-wise, and this is subjective, I'm finding myself wanting either less canvas above or more below. I alos find the image a bit blue overall...experimenting with a warmer WB could work well. Super cool image!!:c3:

Really well done to get so much of the ant in focus. Nice pose as well with the very slight body bend toward the camera. I also would like photo a bit brighter.

Good for you.

Galliani, very nice image. Be sure you post all the pertinent information along with your images. It's pretty hard to critique without them!
