I might have over-edited it a bit too much and I'm not sure if the vignette was a good addition or not.
WOW what a photo good work
You have done well to capture him and keep it sharp with a nice depth of field and I like the detail in his hairs.
The vignette works well and may work slightly better with a more square crop on the photo but this along with the out of focus foreground help direct the viewer into the frame.
One more point to mention is a bit of debris on the ground just in front of the bug which can be slightly distracting but this could either have been removed from the scene just prior to the photo being taken or easily cloned out in photoshop/elements or other software.
Like this one on the whole.
Thank you, James and Eddie!
Such a shame it's dead, but it does give a brilliant model for photographing! I suspect when alive it would be hard to get this close. I think your post processing has helped to make it a brilliant image, the colours are good and the vignetting (as Eddie has pointed out) focuses the eye on the bug!
It's not dead, my mom saved it! It was on its back because its wing was broken and it ran into the wall of the brick several times and fell onto its back. Thanks for the feedback!
Oh! Poor thing - it sounds a very clumsy bug!
Nice shot -- the vignette adds a touch of sadness, even.
