This is a nice photo David but I think it could be a bit sharper. I have uploaded a mod where I have applied a bit of sharpening and cloned out the blemish on the apple. I have also cropped it a bit to focus in on the action, but I have maintained the proportions of the original.

Best wishes

Well, David, this is far better than your last snail picture, so well done. Here you have the apple and stalk to create a nice composition and to put the snail into some context. I like the way you have only included part of the apple, so that all attention is on the snail. I also think you used dof to good effect here, and your background is far from distracting. I think the snail is a bit too central, and would have cropped some from the left. I see you used a macro lens, and that has made a lot of difference. I think you are definitely on the right track.

I like the idea but I don't think that you have quite got this right. I think that we need to see more of the snails face so to speak to make it a little more than a snail shell and give it some character. Also I don't think that you need to have the entire apple in the shot.

The image needed some sharpening and levels adjusting which I have done and uploaded.

Hope this helps
