ladybugI think the composition could have improved had you located the ladybug slightly off-center. Also, could you have zoomed in more to allocate more space to the insect rather than the leaves? I think the picture would improve had you done so. I particularly think that the flower on the right hand side of the picture detracts attention from your subject and should be cropped out.

Small Spider- big lens.

Small Spider- big lens.I think 1 and 4 are the best - you should show more of the subject given that the web is a pretty standard spider web with nothing striking or different, (more spider, less web). That leaves us with 1 and 4 therefore...

I think 4 looks slightly sharper and in macro shots I believe higher sharpness always leads to a better result, particularly a shot where depth of field wasn't a critical component (being from top view, not frontal). Had the picture been taken from the front, depth of field in the image would be more important, but being from the top, all of the spider has to be sharp, including the web underneath it to give the spider some context.

So my suggestion is to present picture 4 if you had to pick one.
