Moon Landing

By kel55
used extension tubes on 105 mm macro lens to get this shot of some sort of flying ant , another holiday shot , unusual texture of wall made my think of a moon surface , used a torch in front of insect for the lighting effect, cheers for taking a look, also thanks to everyone who voted and gave awards to open doors , never expected it to do so well ,cheers Kel

Really nice image Smile I've never used extension tubes but would like to give them a go at some point.

Such an appropriate title, Kel!
The focus on the eyes is so accurate and draws your eyes straight to them.
Creative use of a torch for the background.
All in all, a superb image!SmileSmile
Hope you had a great holiday!

Quite a surrreal effect but you got the compund eyes pin sharp from the look of this one and the symmetrical comp works well.
