I have just spent time trying to figure out your two faint logos. Why? Who would want to steal a 600 pixel image.

The initial viewing of this image suggests something quite strong, but then I look closer.

You are not using your macro lens to the best of it's ability. ISO 3200 is not where you should be to shoot quality macro - ISO 100 or 200 with suitable lighting - possibly ring flash. It is usually better to place long thin subjects diagonally across the frame too.

You do not need 1/2500 sec either. Try and maximise quality with any natural history record, and particularly close up. High ISO is not usually the way to go, and your settings wouls suggest we should expect needle sharpness, which is not there. Probably due to 3200 ISO I would think.

Hi Sarasij and welcome to EPZ. Tricky to get the exposure right here with lots of black and splodges of white. You have done well but the blacks are perhaps lacking a bit of detail in the front third, behind the head. Good diffuse background as well so the caterpillar stands out well. I like the viewpoint as well, looking up at the insect

I agree with Paul about no need for the very fast shutter speed. 1/2500 is what I would expect for a very fast moving bird and caterpillars are quite slow moving creatures Smile. Even half that speed would be excessive, I would think. Also you might be able to open your aperture a bit. The caterpillar is more or less in the same plane of focus, so depth of field is not that critical an issue. All this is in the interests of lowering the ISO as much as possible to get the best quality.

Enjoy your time with us, Sarasij and best wishes

Catherine

Hello dear friend, welcome to epz. As you are new to this epz, I should detail you one thing that if you are serious on photography then it is the right place to learn, learn by seeing the images of others and how they take in which techniques by seeing the exifs.
Again about ur image that u have uploaded one, this is really a good one excepting the watermark of your name that u have done, one thing is sure that nothing is impossible one can omit ur wathermark and write his, but here in epz if u right click and save the image then it gets saved in the gif extention and not in the jpg extension, nothing gets saved in ur desktops.
Anywhich way this one is a good one, hope to see some excellent images in ur portfolio. Keep it up.....

Samar..

Sory, samarmishra but that's not the case.
If I right click and "save as" I can save any image on here (and almost anywherere) and as a Jpeg.
It's even possible to by-pass the photo-protector thing on here in a couple of clicks.
No image that you post on the internet is safe from being copied.
