Ready to jump

By clive burrow
I thougt about cropping this tighter, however I've left it full frame.
I rather like the space around the grasshopper. Let me know what you think.

This just reminds me of the animation Bugs Life!

I like the effect and it works for me.

Well as you mention it, tighter crop for me too. seeing the bug 'out of context' in a high key 'studio' looks a little incongruous, but is quite effective.

I like it, but I would have cropped it slightly - I think that the white makes it look too small....

Nice one!
